Hi there.

I have a Software DVD, which has only 3 files in it, named as

AcrobatReader.exe
autorun.exe
autorun.inf

If i view the DVD size in My Computer, it shows the size as 1.3 GB, but when i go inside the DVD and select ALL and then properties, the size is only 33MB.

I want to copy the whole DVD to my Hard Disk, but the contents are not visible, how to copy it to HDD and make it run from there, instead of inserting DVD again and again.

Change options to show the files and folders with hidden attributes and then check if you can see all the files.
Here is how : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows-vista/

I already did that , and then checked , still there are only 3 files as i stated above. I even copied those files in the DVD using CTRL + A and then pasted into an empty folder on my desktop and then tried to run that Autorun file, but it gives an error in broken fonts, however that same Autorun file runs perfect if i run it from DVD.

I cant copy my DVD contents to my HDD. In my DVD i have 3 files which show the size 33MB(CTRL + A , Right Click>Properties), but the total size of the DVD is 1.3GB (Right Click (DVD Drive in my Computer) > Properties ). May be some files are hidden. But then i SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS from Folder Option, still there are no other files in DVD except those 3.

If i copy those 3 files to my Desktop, the files wont run, it gives error in some broken fonts

Even if its copy protected, it should display the contents of DVD, right?

Download ISOBuster. It should be able to extract the data from your DVD.
