If you have a second cd drive try using that one. And if you dont the game might be damaged

i Have the same problem, my dvd drive wont work because i plugged the sound thing into the back of it and smoke came out of it. So i'm going to try the dvd rewriter drive, but i supect that it's something to do with the game.
u know i wrote a message to ea games support and they wrote me back , and they offered how to solve this problem, and one of them worked, as now i can play and enjoy the game. So they are below : Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts. I’m sorry for the difficulty that you are having with LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth.
Here are some tips to help get past the CD ROM trouble you are having. Please try these one at a time, and then try loading the game after each step. If the same issue (or an additional issue) occurs, proceed to the next step.
There have been some known issues with CD ROMs reading Safedisk correctly. You can try this Safedisk Patch and it should resolve your issue:
Install the downloaded file, then restart your computer. If you have another CD rom/DVD/CD-RW Drive on your computer, I'd recommend trying to run it from there. If you have any Virtual CD rom drives running, such as "Daemon Tools" or "Phantom CD", these will need to be disabled. These programs will emulate a CD rom drive and will confuse the game because it will look to this drive instead of your physical CD rom drive.
If the previous steps did not work, and you have 8GB of harddrive space available, you can try copying the disk files to your harddrive and installing without the CDs. Make sure to follow the steps below exactly as they read, or else the install may not work.
Double-click My Computer. Right-click on the Local Disk C and choose Open. Right-click inside the window and select New, and then Folder. Name the folder Disk Images it is important that the name has a space in it. Double-Click the new Disk Images folder to open it. Right-click inside the window and select New, and then Folder. Name this folder Disk1. Repeat steps 6 and 7 while substituting Disk1 for Disk2 and so on until there are 4 Disk folders followed by a number 1 through 4. It is important to note there must not be a space between "Disk" and the number. Insert Disk 1 of Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth into your CD-Rom drive and if the autoplay starts, cancel it. Double-click My Computer to open it. Right-click on your CD-ROM drive and choose open. When you see the contents of the disk in the Window, click on edit at the top of the window and choose Select All. All the contents of the disk should now be highlighted, click on Edit at the top of the window again and choose Copy. Open the Disk1 folder you created under C:\Disk Images , Click on Edit at the top of the window and choose Paste. This will copy the contents of the CD into the Disk1 folder. Repeat steps 9 through 14 for the remaining disks until you have copied each disk into its apropriate folder. Once all the disks have been copied, remove ALL CDs from any drives. Open the Disk1 folder under Disk Images and double-click on setup.exe to start the installation. To save disk space, you can delete the Disk Images folders after the installation has completed.
If these steps fail, see if you can try to install the disk on another computer to verify the integrity of the disk itself. If setup fails on another system, or you do not have access to another system to try this on, you will want to contact our Warranty department for a replacement disk.

Something is wrong with youre CD to damaged or youre harddrive if fulll
Was trying to install return of the King from the dvd. All it would do is start to install and then just sit there and do nothing. What I found when I opened Task Manager was a program called E Reg running. Once I stopped it install was Okay. Hope this might help somebody.
