    Question DIGITAL COPY w/dvd's

    Advertisement



    Hey All,
    i know there is a thread already for video converters, but i thought this may have deserved a separate thread...

    So now that DVD's and BLU-Ray discs come with a DIGITAL COPY for portable players.....now on the Digital copy itself there are .wmv files, i read somewhere once that the Storm can play .wmv files, however, when i load the file into the Storm it wont play and i haven't been able to get a converter to convert it correctly. and i believe the Media Sync program for the BB's only transfers music from your itunes to you BB..... anyone have any insight on how to get the .wmv file to work on the storm?

    Thanks in advance....

    Not sure how to convert them to the Storm, but I have a BB BOLD and I use an application called ConvertXDVD if I recall. If you google for a free convertor, you'll find one that will work for your device....

    Edit: I found this online from google

    Storm video playback: AVI, 3GP, H.264, H.263, MP4 and WMV with excellent quality

    Here is a link for a step by step tool to convert DVD's and .wmv files also!



    Hope this works for you and let us know if it does or doesn't.................

    Yeah you cannot use Digital Copies on your Storm (i tried for two weeks lol) basically all you have to do is rip your DVD onto a mp4 and transfer it to your storm.
    Thats your best bet.

    It says on the cover of digital copy dvd,s that it comes with the software you need to convert to most portable players, my friends IPOD play mp4 files, as does my curve, I think so cant you just use the software that comes on the DVD ?

    stynkyq2, do you happen to know the restrictions on that free version of the 3herosoft converter you posted?

    Yeah but on a mac you do get a mp4 file but only authorized to use on YOUR itunes library and apple portable players (ipod iphone)
    on a pc you get a protected wmv file as well.
    They dont want people being able to share digital copies online easily and thats understandable.
