Yes there is this weird .ini file which has no name but only an extension that confuses dos copy. Later windows versions copy/xcopy can handle this.
Omit this file and copy the rest, the game runs just fine without it.

From windows file manager just don't select to copy that particular file, like you'd do in modern windows
From dos if you don't use any file manager like norton commander you can copy the files in groups
copy sounds.* d:\...
copy sprites.* d:\...
copy *.psm d:\...
...
until you copy everything except the .ini

Hi. What CD-ROM driver is being used?
I once had similar issues with vide-cdd.sys loaded high.
