It's amazing that this post is still alive since the original post was back in Feb. I doubt the DVDs are still available, however for all those of you thinking about purchasing something like this here is my take on it since I had/have the same exact problem.
The DVDs are made for Windows XP - will not even install on Vista. The installation is very tricky. You must follow every step to the exact detail and even then, at times it reverts to German. It turns out that there is an expiration date which make it work only in German after that date if you are not on-line to the Internet. So everytime I use the manual now, I am on-line to get it to come out in English.
Having said that, the manual is invaluable in my opinion. I ordered mine for an S-class (W220) but it also has information on all other models - another reason why you need to be on-line. The look on the mechanics faces when I bring the printed copies and show them exactly what I'm talking about is priceless. Just my .02 cents worth.
