Question rope effect...

hi,
i wanna learn that how can i do a winch and rolling rope mechanism. I create a poly cyclinder for a winch and make it passive rigid and for the rope i also create a poly cyclinder but i want that when the cyclinder rotates in its axle, then the rope will begin to roll around the winch. Should i study on dynmics more or can do it with cloth?
Thnx...

If youve got maya unlimited, I would use a a hair folicle for it.

If youve goit complete then I would use a series of joints to make the rope with a smooth bind and then animate it from there.
