How can I copy 1,400 DVDs to a new hard drive?

The Guardian
Harry has data backed up to DVDs, but wants to copy the files to a hard drive. Is there a quick way to do it? Over the years, I have been backing up files to writeable DVDs. I probably have around 1,400 of them. Now I want to transfer their contents onto a single 10TB USB hard drive. Can you and your erudite readers recommend the quickest solution? Is there a DVD recorder that can load 10 to 20 DVDs at a time and automatically copy them onto said 10TB hard drive? Also, are there any issues with the formats needed to ensure access to my data for another 10 years or more?
