What you need to do is play them on your computer and use an application to make a digital file of the movie. You will want to store all your digital copies of your movies on an external hard drive that will then plug into the USB port of the WDTV player.
Personally I prefer the WD 2TB Passport drives. They are small, very reliable and can be purchased at cost for a little over $100. To give you an idea how much they can store, I have a little over 850 movies on my Passport and 27 TV series (some with dozens of episodes) and have only used about 1.2 TB of space.
I see you have an iPad2 from your signature. Do you have a Macintosh computer as well? If so I can PM you the name of the software you use to make the digital copy of the movie (it is free) and some information on how to use it. It is very easy to do.
