Sounds like an interesting product.

As an alternative to using the term collection, you could also use archive, or
media archive.

I would call the CD version a CD media archive (or collection) and the CD/hard
drive version a linked media archive (or collection)

Also, I'm guessing you meant that CDs were supposed to be converted to MP3s
rather than MPEG movies?
