    I bought starcraft and the expansion about a year ago and always played them. then my computer messed up and I had to use the system restore disc which wiped out all my precious files(luckily i saved my starcraft maps). so about 3 months later i tried loading the starcraft discs and they dont work! all that they do is make the noise of a disc spinning around like its about to do something, but it just makes my computer run really slow until I take the disc out. I tried going into 'my computer' and clicking on the starcraft icon as it appears in place of my c drive icon but it just gives me the hourglass until i take the disc out. I tried both of my disc drives and they do the same thing. I gave the discs to someone else and he said that they work fine.

    What do I have to do to get this to work?! Every other game of mine works fine, even older ones!
    Oh and btw I am using Windows XP
