I never done that before.
But, are those dvds you got there from downloading?
If internet connection speed is not a problem for you, the easiest way is to mirror the nearest official mirror.

i downloaded those dvd's in the city,

but in the province internet connection are limited or super very slow connection

mirroring or fetching nearby mirror wansnt possible

sometime i do/we do reformat our lab computers 3-4 time a day during RND runtime

our application requires direct access to USB port and PCI Devices so it cant done by Virtualbox or VMware

Well..I have no experience in combining Debian dvds installer into one source.
But if, your current solution by mounting all those dvds works fine, I think for now, you should stick with it. I mean, it's working right? So no problem.

Anyway, have you tried copying all stuffs on those dvds into one directory? Perhaps it might work.
