I just purchased a movie through iTunes. I want to put the movie on an SD card that I have that fits into a USB accessory so we can use it on different computers. How do I do that? I tried to just drag it to the SD card but it didn't work. -- chopperchick asked on apple communities.
Many iTunes users may encounter the similar problems: can't put iTunes videos on the SD card, can't transfer iTunes movies to android phones, unable to share iTunes media files freely, incapable of keeping iTunes rentals for longer time... Why? That's because Apple uses M4V to encode video files, such as TV episodes, movies and music videos in its iTunes Store. The copyright of M4V files may be protected by using Apple's FairPlay DRM copy protection.
To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. That is to say. you certainly can't store iTunes videos on SD card as you need. But now you don't have to worry about that.
