    You need to be more precise. What kind of computer are you trying to install it on? Is it Windows XP or Vista?

    I expect it's Command and Conquer 3, correct, not Red Alert 3 or any older games? And by the sound of your two sentences, you cannot get past the initial menu that shows up as you put the disk in your drive, only play the demo trailer of Battle for Middle Earth? 

    This is hard to solve since I know very little of your circumstances, and thus what could be the problem. However, if I were you, the first thing I would try would be to go to My Computer, right-click the icon for the disk drive in which you have put the DVD (usually tagged with C&C3), and click Explore. From there, you should be able to find an executable file apart from "autostart". It is possible that you've run into a bug in the menu itself that will not allow the install file to run.
    Otherwise, restart your computer, and before it starts to load your operating system, press F5, F8 or F10. It varies between computers, so try each until you get the right one. Then you want to start your computer with Windows in Safe Mode. From there, try to install C&C3 if possible.

    If neither works, return with further specifications on your computer and your problem.

You probably jumped during your workout which makes the xbox "shake" causing the disk to rub against the drive, it's a known issue for years. Get the disc replaced.

Try running the game in compatibility mode under properties. (Try XP SP3), and while you're in properties click the `run as administrator` check box aswell.
If that works then your game was probably just not meant to work with Windows 7.

Try seeing if your disc is scratched or smudged. Sounds like this could be the culprit. If that isn't the problem about the only thing I could recommend is contacting customer service and maybe getting your disc swapped for a good one.

Try eliminating the following two potential problems
The 1st problem is the batteries. When loading the batteries the 4 red LED's on the side of the board should start flashing. If this is not the case replace the 4 batteries the game came with.
The 2nd problem is the two middle batteries. Unlike the batteries on the outside the middle batteries can move freely. Add some thin layer of foam on top of these 2 batteries before sealing the battery compartment and everything should work fine
