    Hey gang...new to the forum.

    Quick question the wife and I are heading out tomorrow for the US Open and I rented a movie from iTunes for her to watch on the Pre. It says that the Pre won't play it...

    Is there anyway to get it to work or did I just waste $4

    Can I get any iTunes video purchases like TV shows etc to play?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately it isn't going to happen. The Pre will not play DRM laden iTunes files. Rentals will only play on an authorized "APPLE" device.

    Yes you can put full dvd movies on the pre. But you have to convert them first. Google for free for free software.

    If you go to the Sprint TV application that came on the phone, I believe you can rent a movie there. The selection is a bit limited. But something might be better than nothing. I haven't tried it myself yet. Let us know if it works for you.

    Is Aimersoft a good converter? What form do I have to convert and how do I rip?

    Sorry...

    Supposedly DoubleTwist can transfer DRM protected content from iTunes and elsewhere but I have not tried it.

    If you want to convert DVDs to play back on your Pre (or anything else) I, and many others, highly recommend Handbrake (HandBrake). It's not totally self explanatory but it runs on Windows/Mac/Linux and it's very powerful/flexible, free and works great. I use the ipod preset and change the video size to 480x320 for the Pre. Note that HandBrake does not decrypt protected DVDs - I use DVD43 (DVD43 v4.40 - Download Sites) for this (also free) and the combo works great.

    Obviously, these should only be used for legal purposes...

    Google for Handbrake. It's free and works great. Just use the iPod Touch/iPhone preset and it will make a .m4v file that should play just fine on the Pre.

    For DVD to mobile devices:

    AVS Video to iPod. Make video for Apple iPod video players with AVS Video to iPod.

    Use the DVD to Mpeg4 Video tool.
    This is free, good software.

    DVD Catalyst 3 is awesome. Basically a one click interface for the Pre. It's only 10 bucks right now.
