While you can copy the files to the ipod, you won't be able to view them or run the software on the CD on the iPod.

Sorry.

none of the files are in a format that the ipod can play i.e. mp3/m4?/mov/mp4/m4c

After a little digging, it looks like your program is Hindi Guru, developed by Magic Software.
http://www.worldlanguage.com/Products/Hindi-Guru-2410.htm
https://calico.org/p-134-hindi%20guru%20(22000).html

As it was developed for Windows, it's not going to run as an app on an iPod.

There are apps that teach Hindi available in the iTunes Store:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/learn-hindi/id325350528
https://itunes.apple.com/app/hindi-language-guide-audio/id296324026?mt=8


You could possibly use a screen and/or audio capture program to record yourself playing through the tutorial to an audio or video file. You could then replay that video/audio on your iPod, but you wouldn't have any interactivity.
