    Hello,
    I purchased a movie from the iTunes store, and I want to make a copy so I can watch it in my dvd player on my tv. Can anyone tell me how to accomplish this?

    The DRM prevents it.

    I wouldn't mind having a two-price system where you could purchase an iTunes-only or iTunes and burnable copy versions of a movie or TV show. That already is the net result of some of the Disney films (but in reverse): buy a physical copy and get a code for iTunes download in addition (that's the way I got Wall•E).

    Yeah, blame the studios. They need to implement Managed Copy if they are going to stick to DRM.

    To be fair, you should have researched this before going head first and purchasing a movie.

    You can't 'expect' anything.

    And since iTunes went iTunes Plus I believe its unlimited CD burning of audio files, since they are DRM free.

    Hm I made the same mistake as the OP once, I just assumed. And the mistake's now even easier to make since music doesn't have any DRM on it.

    For over a year now I've been sitting around with a bundle of things in my cart waiting for them to make the video DRM more realistic.

    Yeah I LOL@ the fact iTS charges you the amount for a DVD [in most cases more] just to watch it on a computer screen or on a iPod. I also laugh at the $5 rental charges that you can get at a local redbox for $1.

    Rip off to say the least.

    It's called the price of convenience.

    Also, ownership costs more than renting.

    What if you rip the movie yourself (w/Handbreak) and send to iTunes library, is there a way to burn that version to a disc? I realize that there would be some quality loss, but it would be nice in certain cases. :confused:

    Adding stuff you acquired yourself is DRM free. Do with it as you wish, that means converting it, burning it to whatever medium, and watching it wherever you want.

    Never really tried before, but it's good to know it's an option. I suppose all modern DVD players can read mp4's (or m4v's whatever) nowadays?

    Burn can take the mp4 and make it a DVD.

    Depending on the bitrate, Burn can also make it into a VCD, so if they're lower quality rips already, that might be an option too. Burn is great. :) (Although I think Toast can do all this too.)

    It can, but why pay for Toast when Burn is free?

    Huh. I've been using iTunes for years and I never noticed there was a limitation on burning bought music. Is it a really high number or something? Because I've lost track of how many times I've burned my songs to CD at this point.
