    Make sure you have around 25GB of free space.

    so you can only have a couple of movies stored on your computer

    For most people, this holds true. Movies are around 25GB, and most HDDs are only 100-300GB. Allowing 4-12 movies if that's all you store on it, which is usually not the case.

    I onhestly do not know. I guess if you have a few favorites you might want to. You cannot make a very big collection of them on most HDDs. Even a 500GB HDD can only hold about 20.

    You can copy HD-DVDs with the appropriate hardware and software.

    Hardware

    You will need a HD-DVD burner (only one available is from Toshiba at around $500-600 and only works at 1X) Appropriate burning software to copy HD-DVD file folders. Don't have a suggestion as to that as the media @ $16-20 a pop makes it all a lousey investment at this time. Most of us who are copying movies have tons of storage (I have about 2 TB). Consider adding a Maxtor 1 TB external USB2 drive for about $350 that will store about 40-50 HD-DVD's movie Folders.

    At some date in the hopefully near future drives and media prices will drop drastically. I've been at this for a long time and just to give you an idea my first CD/RW drive cost $800, burned at 2X, used gold media that cost about $10 per disc and had a 50% Coaster (failure) rate. 2 Years later the drives were 8X, cost $125, had only a 10% coaster rate and media was down to $1. Today CD/RW drives are about $25, Media $ .15, and a near 0% failure rate.

    The same pattern held true for DVD/RW but over only a 2 year time span rather than 10 years. I believe AnyDVD, DVD-X Copy, DVD Shrink, and Clone DVD had a major impact in this as people began to dupe movies causing increased demand for drives and media and the corresponding reduction in prices. I expect HD-DVD/RW drives to be at least 4X and under $2 by the end of the year with media costs under $5 at which time duping disks will make sense. From there on the costs should drop dramatically while the availability of drives, and media increases.

    This may all be wishfull thinking but I wouldn't bet against it.
