I've saved some folders and programs on a CD. Can anyone tell me how to write a program to create folders and copy files from my CD to my hard drive? Thanks for your help, people!

rem create a folder on c:
mkdir c:\john\cdtest

rem copy a folder named abc from cd drive e: to c:
xcopy /s e:\abc c:\john\cdtest

dir c:\john\cdtest
