    Does anyone know how to do this?

    I can't figure out how to burn iTunes downloaded videos to anything other than a data CD.

    iTunes does not support anything other than an audio CD. Finder seems to only support data CD or DVD.

    iMovie won't import downloaded videos - says they're not importable. Same goes with iDVD. Quicktime Pro won't let me save one as a .mov file. Toast won't import them - incompatible error.

    Am I up against a copy protection wall?

    Kind of bummed - I downloaded a Green Day video to give to my kid for Christmas on a Video CD.

    I'm sure there is a way around this but I just don't know how to help you with that.

    I have the same problem

    Hey, I was trying to burn the episodes of lost that I downloaded on to a dvd, but I couldn't find a way to convert them into a format that was a burnable video. I am using a PC and tried to import them using Premiere and that didn't work. Let me know when you guys figure it out.

    I'm pretty sure there's no easy way around it (if any) at this point. We'll just have to wait for a JHymn-type product to deauthorize our videos.

    The only way i believe you could get around the authorization issue is to rerecord the video using Snapzpro software- http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/snapzprox/
    or something similar.

    You should check on the legality of this of course...
