Try this : Download this software : http://www.imgburn.com/ install it. Now open it / click on Write files/folders to Disk / on the left hand pane look for a folder icon "Browse for a folder" / Browse your movies folder / Select it / open it / example D:\Movies\ / Look for a button "Switch to image file output" / Click it / Select a Destination / Hit the "Build" button. That's it.

If you done everything right you will have a ISO file of your movies. Now try to copy this file to new HDD. And don't worry about your movies or transfer thing all will be fine. Good luck.

Just to clarify things I posted above, if that confused you, see this link for better understanding : http://en.kioskea.net/faq/29190-imgburn-create-an-image...

And to answer your 2 questions : 1. Yes you can convert them back anytime you need. Use this software to open the ISO files :

http://www.filehippo.com/download_daemon_tools/ it is a virtual drive.

2. No the problem will not be there with the new HDD. You can copy/move the files at your will.

Note : If somehow the original files has corruption then the making of ISO files process will not be possible. If the files converts to ISO without problem then you are free to do anything with the files. Good luck.
