Unable to install or copy file from second DVD.

My crysis Game installation is interrupted after inserting 2nd DVD.I'm not able to continue installation or copy file from 2nd dvd.It is isnt write or read protected but unable to copy content
When i'm trying to do so,windows explorer is freezing,till dvd is ejected manually.
2nd DVD consists of an autorun ,setup,and a data(cab) file.
I Have nero essentials but it copies entire data from disc in form of single file,which can only be burned into another DVD.
Can any one help me finding software in force extracting these files to PC folder,so that i can i continue installation from PC,I had already copied all content from DVD 1.Any help would be greatly appreciated....

Open a Elevated Command Prompt.
Put the DVD in.
As soon as Windows Explorer starts to open, close it immediately.
If that works, use xcopy to copy the content of the DVD to a folder on your harddrive.

If the DVD drive is D: for instance:

xcopy d:\* %userprofile%\Desktop\DVDFolder\ /s/h/r/i/k/e/y

This will copy everything from the DVD to a DVDFolder on your Desktop.
Once that completes, type

%userprofile%\Desktop\DVDFolder\setup

That should start the installation.

Are you able to try it on another computer in case the Optical drive is unable to read it for whatever reason or the DVD is somehow damaged

Then I would say there is something wrong with the 2nd disc. You could try making a copy of it using CD\DVD burning programs like Roxio, Nero, CDBurnerXP (freeware), all can do the job. You may get lucky and this will work. If so, that may resolve your problem.
