    Nook color and Itunes?

      s it possible to transfer movies already bought and downloaded to a PC from Itunes, to the Nook Color? If so. how?

        • Re: Nook color and Itunes?

          No.

           

          If you have video you downloaded from iTunes its protected with DRM, software that keeps you from using those videos on any non-Apple devices.  For Apple it keeps you locked in, for studios and content providers it "protects their intellectual property" blah blah blah.

           

          So you can only move video from iTunes to: iPods, iPhones, iPad, Apple TV, and Macs.

           

          I'm sorry you are kinda stuck with that.

              This is a bit complicated as the movies purchased or rented from iTunes Store are protected by DRM restrictions- you can’t play them to any devices other than Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod, etc. You can put the protected iTunes movies onto Nook tablet though, but the movies won’t play. In order to enjoy iTunes DRM movies on Nook Tablet, you can use a DRM removal tool(e.g. ChewTune) to get them clean.

               

              Below is simple guide for you:

                  I'm thinking of buying a kindel fire but you can't put Itunes on it. Can I put my music on a nook color?

                      You can put your music on it (I am assuming you are talking about music purchased from the iTunes Store) but you cannot put iTunes on your NC. You just use the music player already installed on the NC to play your music.......just like you do on an Android phone. The only iTunes songs that will not play are the ones that are still DRM protected. New music is not and old music can be converted through iTunes Plus for a small fee.

                  No. iTunes movies are DRMed and can only be transferred from the PC to an iPod/iPhone.

                   

                  EDIT: and iPad.

                    Actually, YES, you can take your video and music content from iTunes and load it right on your NookColor! I just did it: I have a Windows-based PC, and I simply opened the folder "My Music", subfolder "iTunes", then subfolder "iTunes Media", then I just used drag and drop to add content I wanted from there to my NookColor files. It is really super-easy, just like moving stuff from your PC to an SD card :smileyhappy: I tested it all after copying it, and it works beautifully (I am SOOO impressed with the video quality). I think B&N did a great job with their initial software with this device, and I can't WAIT til there are more goodies.

                        First clarify what kind of video was it?  If it was a video podcast or something from iTunes U then your experience is what I would expect.  If the video media you transferred was a TV show, Movie, or Music Video that you purchased directly through iTunes from Apple then your experience should not be able to happen.

                         

                        What I did was I loaded onto my NOOKcolor a TV Show I bought from iTunes and a Music Video from iTunes.  Shockingly the music video did play and looked great.  However the TV Show stated "This video cannot be played", I looked at the file size, type, and other details iTunes lets you know and it should (spec-wise) be playable if it didn't have DRM.

                         

                        I am shocked beyond measure that the music video played.  I'm not sure what to make of it.  But I am still confident that movies and TV Shows are not playable, unless they are very old and maybe have some sort of older DRM that isn't as robust.

                         

                        But anyone else tried to put their iTunes TV Shows or Movies on the NC?  I'd like to hear from other people because I'm still kinda...not 110% cause of the music video.  So if you have an NC and a movie or TV show from iTunes try to load it onto the NC and play and let us know what happens.

                          It should not be possible. This is a case for the techies. The XDA tecs should have a field day with this.

                            I have a nookcolor and i am a really techie person i can most likely answer some of the problems going on with the nookcolor and putting vides & music on it. Its possible to put itunes music on your nookcolor & the playback is amazing, like other people said but there are some videos that will say 'video cannot be played' or 'this file is not supported' or other things. Unfortunately i havent been able to successfully play any videos from itunes. No videos i've played & downloaded onto my nook have been able to play. so, for now no videos are able to play besides the video that is already on there on, 'getting started with the nook' video :smileysad:

                                yes, this is very easy! i'm 12 and figured it out. these are the easy steps

                                1. plug nook into computer.

                                2. open files when your nook file pops up

                                3.open your computers muisc files

                                4. while both your nook music files and your itunes music files are up, simply drag the music from one to the other.

                                    You basically transfer iTunes music the same way you transfer it to your smartphone. Some songs may not play because it is DRM protected, but most of the newer songs purchased on iTunes will work. You can expand your library view in iTunes to show whether the music is AAC Protected or not.....that will tell you whether the song will play once it is transferred to your NC.
