Well CDs would be best downloaded as a series of music files with mp3 format being the best. I can't envisage another way to download a CD other than that.

DVDs - don't know any legal download services yet.

If you burn MP3s as audio the software will convert them to audio files so they will sound almost as good as CDs.

The link given by dms05 is frankly an amazing website. Several people have expressed doubts about the legality of the site (as far as the uk is concerned). I discovered the site when it was given a very strong recommendation by the Sunday Times - who probably have one or two lawyers on their payroll vetting such advice....
Lossless flac files are about £4 per cd but sound exactly like the original cd (when converted back to wav & burnt to disc), even when subjected to critical listening on a high end system. Remember we are talking about very large files here so you need a broadband connection.
