Strange that two separate views in Windows Explorer behave differently, assuming your D: drive is a CD/DVD drive try Microsoft's basic fix for registry issues affecting this.  
Works for both 32 and 64 bit versions of XP.

I would run Windows update and make sure all the Microsoft updates have been applied. Restart the Pc and test it again.
