These newer drives should be able to handle a variety of discs without causing problems, especially if you haven't tweaked it.

also as with all drives - a badly scratched disc can damage beyond repair!!!

if u haven't had these symptoms then I wud guess that its just that u cannot access certain parts of it.
so it probably is not your drive.
Now Samsung have had a bad rap bout their optical drives but this only applied to their early (1st?) generation drives, their current range, specially the one in the box, performs brilliantly with cdr/w's - I had a scratched audio disc that refused to read past the 2nd track but it didn't hurt the drive cos I removed it asap - so I really doubt if your drive is damaged.
the definite test wud be to play some other game and see if it freezes!

did u try another game, and get the same results???
if ur indeed have a dead drive then by all means take it back and get a replacement box!
I can't believe u'v waited this long........................
