1. To solve hang on boot
Move the CDROM behind the hard drive on the boot order
2. To solve freezes on drive reads
Update the driver from manufacturer
or
Change the windows read ahead method

But again, sounds like need new CDROM drive.
So there you have it, a couple of different ideas on how to try to debug the problem and a likely solution that we all agree on: replace the drive.

Good luck to you!

LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted


What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.

I am having a LG DVD writer GSA-4167B currently stops reading or writing disks after few runs


as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.
