Default Slow Installations from CD's

I've noticed that whenever I install a program from a CD it takes an unusually long time...

Although it eventually does complete and fully installs the program, the speed is EXTREMELY annoying. In some cases it takes about 15-min per CD.

It didn't use to be like this, but started since I upgraded my mobo and ram.

If anyone has any suggestions to get this corrected I would appreciate it. I'm not sure if this is my hard drive or my CD-rom.. or maybe something wired .. i dunno...

Some times this happens when you use a cd that has many scratches on the surface. I think there is a program that can speed up the data transfer from cdrom to hard drive.
