What is the best method of copying your DVD's to your computer's Hard Drive. I know that I could simply copy the folder's from the dvd to the hard drive but I am wondering if there is a better way to save space.

This won't work with a DVD with CSS (most have it). You can copy them, but they won't play.

If you are very short on storage and have a large number of DVDs - compressing them to about 2-2.5 GB per movie using XviD would be an option.
I'd recommend to upgrade your PC if possible and use ffdshow for DVD playback: no need to spend time encoding and better results most of the time.
