    I've bought a number of things from iTunes, one being an entire series of a certain program.
    As work takes me further from my home i'd like to know if it's possible to copy the series or certain episodes so I can watch at leisure if needed on my work lappy?

    When i try a burn an episode to a disc from iTunes it recommends only data disc format and that it can't fit on one dvd???

    Regards

    To authorise iTunes purchases requires admin rights...?

    I thought i was limited to what I can install on my work laptop.
    I now have iTunes on here, and I can stream my orriginal content from my Imac external HD and watch said data. However, I can't make a copy to take with my and what good will it be to steam when i'm out of range??

    Copy the series from your external hard drive to your laptop.
