THIS works, it's not as bad as it seems, just follow the directions starting from, "Manually delete the registry entries".

Let me know if you still have problems afterwards.

How to burn iTunes purchased movies to DVD disc?


Hi, Carol. Generally speaking, the iTunes purchased movies can't be copied anywhere .due to the fairplay DRM protection. It of course can't be burnt to DVD disc.

But there are some 3rd party iTunes DRM removal software to help you. I recommend you take TunesKit iTunes DRM Media Converter for Mac and BurnX freeware for a try. iTunes DRM Removal for Mac Remove DRM from iTunes Rentals and Purchases...

TunesKit for Mac is a professional DRM removal application to help Mac users remove DRM from iTunes purchased and rented movies and convert iTunes DRMed M4V to MP4 format with lossless quality. After converted, you can burn the DRM free MP4 video to DVD disc freely with any DVD burner tools, like Burn, BurnX, Simply burns, Liquid CD and so on.

If you are running Windows, you can try Aimersoft DRM Media Converter and use the same Windows DVD Burner tool.

I have had to replace my hard drive on my pc how can i get my music back on to pc from my ipod and back into i tunes


Backing up your iTunes library to a CD or DVD To burn a CD (CD-R or CD-RW), your computer must have a compatible CD burner. To burn a DVD (DVD-R or DVD-RW), your computer must have a compatible DVD burner. Check in iTunes Preferences to see if a drive is compatible. See below for steps.
To create your backup disc
  1. Choose File > Library > Back up to Disc.
  2. Select the option you want from the resulting dialog and click Back Up.
  3. The two options you can select from are:
    • Back up entire iTunes library and playlists
    • Back up only iTunes Store purchases
    Whichever of these two options you choose, note that you can also choose "Only back up items added or changed since last backup" to perform an incremental backup.
  4. Insert a blank disc (CD or DVD) into your computer's optical drive. iTunes will scan the disc and begin burning.
  5. Note: If the disc you insert does not have enough space to hold all of the content you will be backing up, a dialog will appear asking whether you wish to backup to multiple discs. You can click Data Discs to continue.
iTunes burns the number of items that fit on one disc and then asks you to insert subsequent discs to continue burning the remaining files. Don't eject a disc while a backup is in progress.
Spoken programs purchased from the Audible.com website are not backed up.
Discs you create using the iTunes backup feature can be used only to restore; they can't be played in a CD or DVD player.

Restoring from a backup disc
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Insert your backup disc.
  3. iTunes will ask whether you want to restore from this disc. Click Restore.
Check drive compatibility
  1. Choose a playlist on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Click the Burn Disc button on the bottom right corner of iTunes.
  3. If the drive is listed, it's compatible.

Can't burn Cds on Itunes


This program is helpful for burning pretty much anything.
Since I got this I don't use anything else.
If it persists even after this program, you may need a new CD/DVD burner.

ITunes registry error/CD-DVD not being recognized


This is what worked for me.....and how I got to be in this problem.

Out of the blue I guess, didn't really notice, my CD drive vanished, no longer appeared in the "My Computer" screen. The solution I found at that time was to delete the upper and lower registry filters. Yeah, that worked, CD drive back. What I was not aware of was that deleting those filters lead to the itunes registry messages that everybody is refering to, along with the inability to burn a CD in Itunes. Uninstall/reinstall was no help.

The solution:

Follow the directions in this link:
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2372?viewlocale=en_US

Follow it to the letter until step 11. At step 11 (step #'s refering to the XP instructions) it states to delete the lower filter, which I had done previously so it was not present, go on to step 12.

Step 12 says to right click on UpperFilter, which I had also deleted. The trick here is to ADD IT BACK IN!! Do this by right click on the right side of the Regedit screen, select "New", select "Multi-String Value", name it "UpperFilters". Your Regedit window should now look exactly like the picture in the instructions link. Now continue with step 12, modify your new "UpperFilters" by right clicking on it. Since you just added it, there will be no value data to delete so step 14 can be ignored. Enter value data per step 15 & hit enter. Click ok, reboot and you should be good.

I just did this tonight and after rebooting my CD drive was still visible and working, Itunes did not give me any errors when loading & I was able to burn a CD with Itunes.

Good luck, I hope this helps. It was ******* me off and I suspect others as well.
