    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.

    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.

    I don't think dvd catalyst will work because I buy my movies on blu ray and my cpu does not have a blu ray player. The only way I get movies on my CPU is through the digital copy. I used doubletwist to convert and copy gijoe to my droid but it plays scrambled. all of my movies say they will not play because they are drm. doubletwist works great for my files that are not drm. all of my movies play fine in windows media player. Is there a windows media app for the droid, or does anyone know if one is coming? maybe with android 2.1. I think until this happens that i will be out of luck.

    I would not hold my breath for a Windows Media app or an MP4 app that would handle Digital Copies.
    Both Apple and Microsoft are not too happy with Android, and since both "Digital Copy" formats are for their apps/devices, I doubt that they will port it to a competitor. In addition, because of the opensource-nature of Android, I dont think that any DRM system would be ported.

    To convert these DRM-infected files, you will have to convert them using a "recorder" program on your computer, such as TuneByte. Basically you activate your digital copy file on your computer so that it can play unscrambled there.
    then you use TuneByte to record the video and audio of the file while it plays it, similar as dubbing a vhs tape with 2 vcr's.

    There are other programs out there that use a similar technique as well, but tunebyte seems to be what quite a few people like to use here, mainly because there is a free version that tends to work well for it. I have not used it myself though.

    I know this may be a dumb question, but with all the napster lawsuits one can't be too careful. Is tunebyte, dvdcatalyst and stuff like that legal?

    its all legal. you stated you bought the movie and are trying to back it up. these software just provide a means to your end thats all. they dont promote downloading pirated movies. :) dvd decrypter is also a good program that will remove the drm protection as well as the one that were mention above.

    I agree that we should/do have some fair use rights, especially since we bought the content. However, I think you are technically breaking the law when stripping the DRM off a file (at least in the US).
