    Assuming the copy protection is removed you can drag n drop, however to save space you may want to use dvdshrink or such like to only copy the titles that you want including using shrinks cut front & end frames (remove intro & outro) ,if not then at the least use menu shrink on the whole dvd & delete the menushrink backup folder that it creates (removes the animation crap from menu it can save a stack of space),personally i'd rather convert the dvd titles to mkv with vidcoder this will save the best amount of space & at the same time enable you to load multiple movies in the movie player & play one after the other or,

    before i continue i suggest installing
    xbmc - free - movie library & player has install version for windows & portable version,more xbmc skins available in add-ons,check out screenshots & you'll understand why,scroll down page after cliking link
    http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Skin_screenshots



    ok dvd movie library software in no particular order & some have portable versions
    datacrow - free
    dvdprofiler - paid
    emdb - free
    griffith - free & is also available on linux
    personal video database - can't remember if free
    my movie library - can't remember if free
    movie manager - can't remember if free
    my movie library- can't remember if free
