Try copying the files off of the disc, maybe if you move them it could possibly harm the disc.
I dont know how to copy off of a disc for the DVD,all i can do is music but it still fails question 1 since the music isnt in mp3 format
Are the DVDs movies? I'm pretty sure that ripping a DVD to your computer is illegal, unless it is one that you've recorded on your camera or something like that (but I could be mistaken).
I would just download iTunes and rip your CDs using the MP3 decoder. In iTunes click on Edit > Preferences, click the Advanced tab and then the Importing tab. Next to "Import Using," click the scroll down menu and select MP3 Encoder. However, that might be more trouble than it's worth.
Why do you need them to be MP3?

I meant like you know right click copy, but you should listen to the other guys they are probably more smarter.
ok Windows midea player can do the songs from RAW to MP3 format no prob but there is DRM embedded in to it, when it comes to Video it is harder, IE DVD hardest to do it takes hours and it steps on copy right laws making it illegal to do video you have the DVD be happy.
Indeed, Windows Media Player will rip the music from the CD on to your hard drive in MP3 format.
But as for the DVD's, there's no legal way to take data off a copyrighted DVD and put it on your hard drive. And therefore no one at Gaming Forums is allowed to help you do this.
That being said, if the DVD isn't copyrighted (say if it's a recording of a personal event, like a school play, swim meet, ect.) Then you can just copy the contents of the DVD on to your hard drive. However, the resulting file on your hard drive will be very large, and it will take a long time to copy. Don't be smart and try to do the samething with a copy-protected DVD, it won't work.
well the ones im trying to copy are those cheap one dollar dvds where the copy rights expired sometime in the 50s,but im not focused on the dvd question all too much
Oh, yeah, I've seen some of those.
Like Betty Boop, and Popeye the Sailor.
Well, if what you say is true, then they won't have any copy protection, and you can copy/paste the contents of them onto your hard drive. But I again remind you that the DVD files will take up a fair amount of space on your HD.
As already mentioned, WMP can rip CDs in a number of formats and one of them is mp3. You can choose whether to incorporate DRM into it or not, and since I assume it's for your own personal use there's no need to.
