guys there seems to be a problem with this Samsung piece o' shit.It reads the disk half & then stops & hangs.Even this OS installation went ok upto 73% & then stopped.Can this be due to my OS or ROM hardware.

What manufactuer and model cdrom is it?

Is it with all CDs or just for your OS installation? It could be a corrupt disk, or some software problem during the installation like software hardware conflict that causes the installation to fail. Tell us why your certain its the CDrom.
