    I just bought my first Mac, a MacBook Pro this summer and have been trying to transfer my movies and tv shows from itunes from my old HP laptop, to my new one. I transferred about nine movies so far, and I have about 30 that wont copy or play on my current computer.

    Any ideas to help me out, I can't seem to figure this out. Would I be better off just buying an external hd and putting it all on there?

    You mean these movies played in iTunes on the old computer and not on the MacBook Pro?

    What format are the offending movies in? Some formats Mac OS X cannot play at all (Windows Media formats 10, 11, and beyond, as well as DRM-protected WM files), and others require additional software to play (Perian for a wide variety of formats, WM Components for WMV 9 and earlier).
