M$ CD w/ Hidden files????

I have a cd that I made in windows a few years back... and it has a a directory that is hidden... How can I view this on linux??? I need a couple files out of the directory and I would rather not have to install windows just to get the files.

Any ideas??

Try a
ls -la /<cd's mountpoint>
If you can see the directory, you can access it, too ;)
