I suggest you rip the CDs with cdparanoia, which handles scratched CDs
better than a plain copy. Furthermore, if you want to save a few
megabytes, you can encode the ripped files losslessly, for instance with
flac, which is what I did with my CDs. I used audio/grip, since it
handles everything in one go and also tags the flacs with the help from

About the DVD part, I can't help you, I have never done that.
