can't install anything off a disc

I have an asus 24x DVD RW and it worked fine until I uninstalled a few of my games so I could reinstall them after I installed a few drivers. it reads the DVD fine, it shows up in my computer, the icon shows up, I can even start the autorun on some instances, but when I try to install it. the installer never shows up, sometimes it even says I need to put in the correct disc, though it says its still in the drive.
the same goes for running the installer through the setup.exe on the disc, instead using the autorun. the installer sort of starts up, then It just quits with no indication why.
the weird thing is, I can manually drag all the files off the disc, and onto my desktop, and install it that way no problem.
but that is incredibly inconvenient and I shouldn't have to do that
I have tried it with 3 different games and non work. some get further than others though, the furthest I got installing from a CD is with crysis warhead and the worst I got was from far cry 2
