Burning an DRM protected iTunes movie to DVD?
How do I burn iTunes movies to DVD?
I have purchased several movies from iTunes. Since most of the times these movies are played on my APPLETV. However from time to time the children want to watch the movies in their room. I can not find any menu option that will allow me to burn purchased movies to a DVD.
Please explain how to do this?
I have a few dozen movies in my iTunes library that I have acquired from various sources – ripping from disc or copying from an external hard drive. I wish to burn all these movies to DVD to free up space on my computer. I have tried burning the movies with iTunes but my DVD player will not read the disc. It gives me a message saying, “There is no video or audio data.” What should I do?
