How do u put a DVD on to an archos 5? Pls!

My OH has just bought an Archos 5 and I am now in charge of getting it going!
He has the mini dock and also the DVR station, but was under the impression that you could put a DVd in the laptop and copy it to the Archos using windows media player.
Is this correct and if so how do you do that pls?
Also does it record quicker than playing the whole film????
many thanks!

I have a 604 wifi and have not been able to record from the pc to the archos. I just connect the docking station to the dvd player via the supplied cables and scart adaptor, rename the film I want to copy from 'default Video.......' to whatever, then hit the play on the dvd and record on the archos screen. I know it's probably not the right way but it works for me.
It takes as long as it would to watch the film

Thanks all- what a palaver!
