Hi, and welcome to the forum!

It would be legal to make images of the discs on your harddisc, it would even be legal to make a backup copy of every disc to prevent the originals from being scratched.

You can use most recent copying programs like Alcohol 120% or CloneCD to make images of those games and mount them with Daemon-Tools, the games' copy protections are merely useless with today's burners and copying software.

The manuals of this software should be sufficient to find out how to make those images, if you'd need more help, just come back here and feel free to ask.
