So, several movies are being packaged with digital copies, so you can add the movie to your iPod or other portable video playing device and watch it on the go. Since a couple movies I purchase had this feature, I thought I would give it a try. I put in the Incredible Hulk bonus disc, and iTunes popped right up and took me to a page to type in the access code provided with the disc. I typed in the code, and the movie automatically downloaded at no extra cost to me. I was then able to transfer it to my iPod. Seems like a nifty deal for trips and the like. So I tried to add Dark City. Surprisingly, I inserted the disc and nothing happened. It just sat there in the drive. I tried starting it up, but noticed the files were .exe (windows only). Then I noticed that there were only WMP files.
Today, I made an interesting discovery…unlike Universal, Warner Brothers has opted to make their digital copies completely incompatible with iPods. You know…the most popular and common personal audio/video player currently on the market? Yeah, that makes sense.
