Possible to copy DVD to HDD and play from there?

Anybody know if it's possible to copy an entire store bought DVD to an external Hard Drive and play it from the HDD using WinDVD? Reason I ask is that I need to show a DVD movie for a training presentation (portion of DVD only) and the computers I have available from the company do not have DVD Drives in them, so I need to copy the movie to my external HDD at home, bring it to work, install WinDVD on the work computer and then use that to play just the movie file.

It would be better to re-enact the scene you want to play instead. No HDD, no nothing. Just you, and the audience.

Get a dvd drive, hook it up to an external enclosure. Take that to work. Problem solved.
