trpnmonkey41 is offline
Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility

Click on the CD in the source window
Go to Images -> New -> From whatever the name of the dvd is

This will create a disk image that you can double click whenever you want, and the dvd will appear on the desktop so you can play without a disk
