    I just noticed that Wall-E will be released in a set that includes a digital copy.

    While I could just order it on iTunes, since I will give it as a gift to my kids at the holidays, I want to give them a physical present.

    But I really like digital versions of kids' movies since they don't scratch. (Amazing how people don't see this value in Apple TV since every movie I got from Netflix was scratched and unwatchable. But that is for another day)

    So my question is: Does the digital copy work on Apple TV, or only on an iPod.

    I also ask because the advertisement on Amazon where I found this indicates that it's for watching movies on the go.

    I was able to watch the Digital copy of Sex and the City that came with the Deluxe DVD, so I would assume that it others would be the same.

    I would say digital copies play fairly well.

    Handbrake or Fairmount plus DTOX (DVD2OneX) will make perfectly syncable digital copies of all your DVDs. :D

    Fairmount loads libdvdcss from VLC and decrypts the DVD, DTOX (DVD2OneX) then copies the DVD movie track to your drive ignoring zero cells (RipGuard/ARccOS), then Handbrake or $OTHER_ENCODER can encode the movie for you.

    It is sad that you have to use two or three pieces of software to get a digital copy of your DVD, but I like to watch my DVDs on my iPhone so I'm okay with it. :D
