    Hi all. I am going on a week-long vacation next month and was planning on bringing some rented movies with me. I noticed that movies expire 30 days after download or 24 hours after they are first loaded. I was planning on downloading about 5 movies and transferring them to my iPod to play throughout the week. Will all of these movies expire within 24 hours of them being transferred to my iPod, or will it still recognize that the movies haven't been played?

    One more quick question. What is the average size of a typical 1.5hr movie?

    The 24 hour limit doesn't take effect until you hit the Play button to start the movie. Until then, you can push them back and forth between your computer and your iPod to your heart's content and they will still be good for 30 days.
    A 1.5 hour movie is around 900, 950MB.
