    Good question. I went into my iTunes directory and loaded one of the movies into my gallery folder. When I tried to play it my Droid said it couldn't. It is an mp4 but I imagine it has some type of copy protection. Hopefully someone else here can give a better answer.


    :confused:

    That is correct. A digital copy redeemed in itunes will not work because of the DRM. I know there are ways to convert a WMV file (if redeemed that way) into a playable mp4 file, but I would image that the WMV file may have DRM protection too.

    No,I had the princes and the frog with the three discs, and the digital copy was useless

    Or just download the movie and convert that.. Since you OWN the movie now it is "permissable".

    I did a little digging and found this thread that while interesting doesn't actually tell you alot other than the legal concepts with DRM:

    The other thing I found much more useful was if you google a slightly rephrased version of your original question you will get alot of useful info. Hope this helps.


    :D
