Default DOS Copy command

I want to copy a CD to a hard drive. Could someone please give me an example to do that, so that it will copy all files/directories, and create the directories if needed in the destination folder.

My CD rom is R: , and i want the files to go to drive D:

i think the command is something like "xcopy" then source directory, space destination directory.

edit: sorry an example. xcopy "R:\my stuff" "D:\"

it works, but it only copies the files, and not the directories that are above them.
