I think that its possible. But unfortunatley I have not ever tried it. I think that their may be a program to do it. I sat if they have a program for everything else then why nat have a program for that. This is a good questions though. I never really hear of too many people doing that...

Asumming you want to copy a DVD movie, you just have to browse into the Video folder in the DVD, select the particular movie file(vob extension)(you ve to open and check which movie), copy it, and paste it in your hard drive. But make sure you have enough space in you hard drive as vob files are very large files... Hope this helps...

Your suggestion seemed to work as there are now two files on my desktop, one for audio and one for video, but if I try to open them nothing happens really. I must have done something wrong?

There's another suggestion though! It could be possible that the dvd you have is content protected, which doesn't allow us to directly copy into the computer just like some audio cds! In this case you will need to get a dvd ripper software. There are many freeware dvd rippers on the internet. Download one and install it. After that you can rip it and store in whatever format you want. Converting the dvd into avi using doctor divx is the best I have done so far. It's just very small a movie file but with excellent quality...

What do you mean "copy a DVD to my comuter"? Do you want to burn another disc or actually have the DVD info copied to your hard drive?

To burn another disc....I just was assuming that I had to copy the DVD to my hard drive to accomplish that but perhaps I was wrong.

If you have a DVD burner, you don't have to copy it to your hard drive. You would only do it through the software. I'm not sure if DVD's have protection on them and if it will allow you to copy a movie. You could always try. I think if you had movies (mpgs for example) on your computer, you could turn that into a DVD.
