    Unhappy Digital Copy Movies

    I have downloaded several digital copy movies onto my computer into windows media player. I have windows vista on my pc. I have the app Stream Media Player on my droid. When I try to sync the movies to my droid I get an error in media player. All that it says is error, have tried transferring over usb and straight to the memory card. I did copy a couple of the free videos that came with media player to my droid and they will play audio but the picture is frozen. Then when it is finished playing it gives error #48. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forums.....

    I am almost positive that you will have to get yourself some video editing software and convert these videos into files the Droid can read properly......check out DVDCatalyst

    If your "Digital Copy" files are the ones from Bluray and some DVDs, below might apply.

    To save you the hassle of reading through them: Tunebite: Start

    In short, because of the DRM on the files, conventional conversion methods do not work. TuneByte (or the other apps that claim to do it) basically "record" the file while it is played on your computer, similar as when people were dubbing VHS tapes.Of course your digital copy needs to be activated on the computer you are using.

    In my opinion, its easier (and better quality) to just rip the DVDs.
    If the files are not, please keep in mind that for video the Droid can NOT play WMV files. it supports WMA audio, but not WMV video.

    Only thing is - dvdCatalyst - on some newly released DVDS will not record the movie in proper sequence, (example, Star Trek 2009), it's like watching the movie in shuffle mode. It has to due with copy protection
    by sony. It throws in a lot of extra data to confuse the dvd ripping program.

    I spent the $9.95 on the software to download ST 2009 my favorite movie - and imagine how surprised I was when I started watching the movies with out-of-order-scenes.

    That is due to the newer encryption on them...Look for AnyDVD and it works with Catalyst and does a great job of fixing that problem.

    I've also found that the free version of "Any Video Converter" works great, as well as Handbrake, as long as you use the ffmpeg codec and not the h264 codec.
