What is described in the following may be illegal where you live. Where I live, the law permits making a small number of copies of the contents of legally acquired media for personal use as long as this does not involve circumventing copy protection. Strangely enough, “personal use” includes giving a copy to close relatives. And “small number” certainly is well under double-digits, but to my knowledge the courts have not yet made it explicit. You didn’t expect the legislators – politicians! – to do that in the course of creating the legislation, did you?
