    Hi

    I have brought some Movies and TV Shows from iTunes and wanted to convert them to Divx for my mom's PC Vista Laptop (She hates iTunes BTW). And it just annoys me so much that i can't convert them as i paid for them so i have the right to do what i like with them convert/put on DVD. It sucks basically that i can't do anything with them.

    Rant Over!!

    That is the one thing that I hate about getting tv shows and movies off of iTunes. I can watch it on my computer, great, and my ipod, fine! But I can't burn (at least one copy) onto a disc or dvd? What gives? Just backing stuff up to hard drives doesn't cut it for me, I have a huuuge archive of cds and dvds and dual layer dvds with an external read writer that I use and I have to keep Flash drives and memory cards for the videos I get from the itunes store, I hate it! And I"m not going to shell out 200 plus bucks for an Apple tv when I can just use the Xbox 360 for watchin content.

    I honestly think they should let you burn one or two copies of each film (then you can rip them back, like the whole burn the music and rip it back... I don't share them though, I do that when I want to convert the files to a different format, mind you I'm no pirate)

    Ah, the many rants of my life...

    I've worked it out now.

    Go to Movies/TV Shows in itunes folder then export to .mov and convert in divx converter then it works.I found the flaw oh yes i found the flaw.

    So how are you supposed to export to MOV? In quicktime? Because that isn't working, quicktime is still tied in with the DRM scheme.
