What is on the cd's? If it's data, just choose to open it in explorer and copy it all to wherever you want. If it is a music cd, just open it in windows media player and tell it to Rip it to your hard drive.

It doesn't matter which type of CD/DVD it is, even a music CD files can be accesed through Windows Explorer, in Computer.
There was never an option in Windows to just click the Autoplay option and copy a CD onto the HDD, it always had to be done manually.
