    1tb is enough space for about 1000+ movies

    it will come up as a removable device, so you can just click the files and they will play in your default player

    you need to use dvddecrypter to get the copyright off,

    to form one file you can choose no split in the options menu, this will give you one 4.xgb file.

    and then if you want you can convert it to .avi to around 700mb

    all of the files should be in the video folder. when you watch with your player, just open the video folder and it should play fine. i have never had anything in the audio folder.
