Some smarter people will backup their DVD to ISO image, and then transfer digital copy through internet. It will save you lots of time.

However, if you want to playback ISO image file directly on your Windows PC, you have to install at lease one or two programs that are either capable of reading ISO or mounting ISO. At this moment, you can rip and convert your ISO image to AVI (Xvid/Divx) format so as to playback and edit the movie on computer. And the output AVI video is also playable on some modes of standalone DVD players, such as Samsung DVD-C350.
