This is not copying, but ripping to a lossy format at very low bit rate (128 kbps). You're far better off ripping the files on a PC and then importing them into iDrive over USB.
That said, it should work as long as you have enough free space - is this a regular store bought CD?

The first couple of thousand miles, pay little heed to the gas mileage. It will settle, usually well lower than what you saw on the new car. As for "city driving", that's so many things. Rush hour traffic is going to give you way less mileage than EPA's "typical" city mileage. Slow creeping traffic is the worst.
