I have an ISO image mounted that is 5mb in size. It however shows only 1 small sized file that is obvious aliases to the larger hidden files in this image. How do I show and extract all the hidden files from this ISO to my desktop?
 
OS -> Windows XP Professional
 
Thanks in advance.

Language? Platform? Hidden file attributes don't prevent your from reading it programmatically, so what's the problem?
Also, did you consider using non-mounted ISO file? It could be simply unpacked.

Please see my comment to the question.
 
And please consider the alternative: simply unpack the file from ISO file, instead of mounting the ISO as a disk. One open-source program which can do it is the famous 7-Zip:

Thank you, Espen.
By the way, this nice 7-Zip feature often saves me from the very pointless installation annoyance, when a ISO file is provided: no burning, no mounting.

You can use the following software to extract the files.
Free RAR Extract Frog
This is a new extraction tool for RAR-archives that supports spanned archives and also supports the decompression of password protected files. To extract, start the extraction of a RAR file by drag-and-drop or double clicking, or shell integrated context menu. Read more on CNET as you download the software.
