If they are not in AMR, yes.
If they are, don't bother.

"Copy over" as in dumping to ADF or copy over the disks with other content?

Easiest way I think is to go to http://amr.abime.net/magazines and locate the magazine which disks you have, then follow the link and select "Cover disk index" for that magazine to see all cover disks indexed. Those missing a download link (or not indexed) are not available and would be nice to get preserved.
