Question regarding Movies previously ripped on a hard drive?

It's been three or four years since I quit ripping movies however at the time I used MyMovies and AnyDVD to rip and store movies. I also had a Sony 400 disc blu-ray player which is getting glitchy.

I want to transfer all of my movies that I had ripped to my new Hard Drives I ordered and start using MadVR as well as a new interface such as Kodi or JR River or something. My question is will the new player find the movies and the hard drive and copy the information to the new system? Not sure If I'm doing a good job with my question but hopefully someone can help.

Thanks

Copying movies from one HDD to another is the same as copying a file from one folder to another. You can copy and paste or drag and drop. For Kodi and JRiver, you tell the program where the movies are stored (which hard drive(s)) and the software will pull the movie information off the internet. If that is not the answer to your question, you may need to reword the question.

Thank you for my answering my question. That's what I was hoping for. Just waiting for my MB to arrive and than we will build the HTPC over the weekend.

Thanks again

I use Kodi for movies, and they have a great wiki that covers how to get it all set up and goes over all the options. I also recommend that you purchase additional external HDD so you have all your movies backed up in case you get a HDD failure. I would hate to have to rip all my movies and music again!
