    Because you didn't buy them from :apple:. It's not going to just work magically, what kind of incentive would that be to buy from iTunes???! :D

    You'll have to convert them all to mp4... hope your comp has some processing punch or it could take a few hours per movie! (Takes about a minute to convert a minute of video, so avg 2 hour movie = 120 minutes convert time)

    You're right about having a modern computer. It takes my C2D MacBook on average an hour (more if it's longer) to rip a movie using the iPhone preset on HB. The one movie I tried on my older G5 iMac took 12+ hours to complete.
