Need a way to crack 2 password-protected .cab files from 2003

Hey there,

I recently rediscovered a game from 2003 and wanted (like I did with all my other old games) extract the files from the cd-rom for private use. The problem with this game, however, is that the files and are password protected. Of course I do not have this password. I did some digging on the internet but could not find anything to help me crack .cab files specifically.

Does any one of you know a solution?

Are the files game files?

Why not clone the disk to an ISO and then just mount the ISO when you want to play?

The files are indeed game files.
I don't need the files for playing, I want access to the files for the little things like soundtracks and soundbytes.
