    Trying to download a movie to Nook Color

      This is indirectly related to NC, so please forgive me if I'm not supposed to post this here!

       

      I read on these boards that DVD Catalyst 4 would convert to Mpeg4 format so that I could view them on NC.

       

      So, I put a DVD into the drive, Leap Year, and 8 files showed up.  File 1 failed to convert, and about 8  hours later, it's attempting to convert File 2. Six of the 8 files are about 1 hour 40 minutes, 1 is 54 min, 1 is 2 hours 12 minutes.

       

      I have Windows 7.  Also, every time Catalyst loads for the first time, Windows automatically starts cyberline power dvd dx to try to view the movie.

       

      I'm not very techno-savvy and  I really thought this was supposed to be easy!

      Does anyone know what I can do?

       

      Thanks!

          Who told you it would be easy? After you figure it all out, however long that takes, then it will seem easy.

           

          What you are saying is exactly why Macs have a better reputation for working with video. It isn't that you can't do all this on PCs. You can. It's just that the Apple folks have made the interface for doing common things a good bit more obvious and uniform.

            You may be seeing different cuts of the movie: widescreen, fullscreen, dubbed, foreign language etc.

             

            I'd suggest you try a different movie to start. Most that I've been copying have 1 or 2 large files to choose from. Satisfy yourself that you understand the process of getting it all the way to viewing on your NC or you may give up under frustration.

             

            If you do end up with multiple files in that upper window of Catalyst, try picking each one in turn and right-clicking and chose remove (or delete, whatever it says) until you have just 1 to deal with at a time. In my experience it's the first file that you want, but not always, as you may have already found out. Also, once you have a file selected, you can hit Preview to get an idea of what you'll get (dubbed, language, format etc.)

             

            Don't give up yet, the first one I did was a bit of a mystery, but once I had it in the bag the next ones are a piece of cake. Try writing the support line at Catalyst, they helped me out, and quickly too, like within a hour.

              I have converted six full movies to MP4.  I am able to play them on Nookcolor.  This coversion was done 4 months ago.  I can be done!

                      Hi AuntieEm,

                       

                      Barnes & Noble doesn't offer any movie service (yet) for the NOOK.

                       

                      Other services, such as Amazon Digital Downloads, Apple iTunes rental/purchase movies and shows also are not compatible with the Nook.

                       

                      If you want to watch movies on your NOOK color, you will either have to use Netflix Streaming Service, or convert your own DVDs to video files that will play on your NOOK.
