    I have less than 3 hours to get this figured out....I have a purchased movie in iTunes that I am trying to write to a DVD. The movie is in .m4v format. When I burned the first DVD, I went to test it in my DVD player and it wouldnt play. When I hit play, it comes up with 2 boxes that flash on screen and then stops. I'm trying to burn another, but I need help. Does anyone know why this is happening? Is there another format I need? As of now I am just dragging and dropping the .m4v file into my blank DVD and it appears to copy and burn, but wont play. Can someone help please??

    Because those movies are copy protected (DRM) and are unusable outside of iTunes and the Apple TV and the iPods.

    This time I just copy & paste my standard reply regarding your less than descriptive and specific thread title.


    The thread title guy strikes again:
    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.
    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?
    from the forum rules:
    Minor Problems
    3. Thread titles.

    Use thread titles that indicate the subject of the thread, not generic titles such as "Need help". Moderators may change thread titles that have no specifics, usually by adding something more specific in parentheses.
