I have tried multiple cds and none of them work. Currently I have the Warcraft III disk in. When I double click its icon in My Computer a black box pops up really quick and then disappears. I cannot install anything with this drive. Please help.

I'd just replace the drive. If you really don't think its bad then you could try repairing windows before doing so but I doubt that it would work. Drives are cheap now so it won't cost much.

Right-click on the drive and choose Explore. See if you can find the program that starts the installation. If you are unsure, open autorun.inf in Notepad and you will see it.

See if you can start the installation that way. It may be only "Autorun" that is not working properly.
