While waiting on the painful download of MW3, I just couldn't wait 3hrs for it to download it all. Steam has a helpful tip (i know, finally they are good for something) to install a game you have the disc(s).

This is what you need to do.

- Make sure Steam is not on.
- Insert disc but do not let it autorun.
- Open the run command window (Windows button + R)
- Type in this command, "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe -install E:"

Now your location of both your steam file and DVD/CD drive might be different. Also, if you are using a 64-bit OS then the program file will be named different too.

This works far better than waiting hrs to download it vs only 30mins of install time.
