Default New Line sucks- Digital Copy related.

Word of warning: New Line digital copies do not work with Macs, or iPods. Despite the picture of the computer on the instructions being a Mac.

Lame move, New Line.

Windows Media.

I got mine last night, and couldn't believe that they provided something incompatible with the iPod, surely the most popular portable device.

As a Mac and iPod user, to me this disc is useless. If Fox and Lionsgate can provide digital copies that work on Macs and PC, why the hell can't Warner?

Maybe you got a bad disc?

The other digital copies out there also contain a WMP file.... it's just that they have a mac compatible iTunes/h.264 on there as well.

Digital copy was originally designed w/iPod and iTunes in mind so.....

On the digital copy instructions for both Harold and Kumar 1 and Dark City, it has written that they don't work with Macs or iPods. Doesn't make sense to me.

There is no standardization among the studios for how Digital Copy is implemented. Fox and Lionsgate support both WMV and iTunes. Warner/New Line only support WMV. Sony's version of Digital Copy supports neither, and is only compatible with their own PS3 and PSP.

Yep I just found that out last night when I got my copies of Harold & Kumar 1 & 2. It's bullshit.

well that makes me happy i'm a PC owner with videora, hopefully it will be able to convert these digital copies, now for Sony, someone needs to do something about those proprietary assholes, didn't they learn their lesson with Memory Stick or Mini-Discs or ATRAC etc...
