How do i back up movies and tv shows

i have tryed to use a cd and do it as data but didnt fit. i tryed to use a dvd like HP lightscribe and that did work it said it wasnt blank. i looked it up and it said buy one from apple products but it didnt have any. does any one know where to buy a cd that can only be read on a computer and not on a dvd player???

You're talking about the shows you've purchased from iTunes, correct? Yes, these will mostly be bigger than will fit on a CD (720mb at the most, and most shows will run 1gb or larger) but if you have the ability to write to a DVD that's the best bet anyway.
If you do have a DVD writer in your machine you can buy blanks nearly anywhere -- these blanks can be used for data or for playing in a DVD player. There is no difference between the two. Cheapest place in the US is most likely CostCo or some such. Office Depot/Office Max, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City, they will all carry DVD blanks. You will want either DVD-R or DVD+R but I'd recommend DVD-R as that's a slightly more reliable data format. Buy the cheapest you can find, as nowadays quality control is very high on all major brands.
And backup is a very good idea -- you're doing the absolute right thing here!

    how can i add videos,movies and tv shows episodes to my ipod nano?I want to know whether i can directly add them through my pc or not without downloading them from i tunes store?

    Yes, you can add your own videos to iTunes, then sync them to your nano, subject to supported max resolution limit and file type.  The specs for the 7th gen nano says (I don't know which nano model you have), Video Format Support
    "H.264 video: 720 by 576 pixels, 30 frames per second; Baseline, Main, and High-Profile level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 256 Kbps; 48kHz; stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
    MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 720 by 576 pixels, 30 frames per second; Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 256 Kbps; 48kHz; stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats"
    http://www.apple.com/ipod-nano/specs.html
    (earlier nanos have lower max resolution limits)
    So, "HD" video is too high resolution, so iTunes will not sync such videos to the iPod (although they play in iTunes).  If you are asking how to set up iTunes to sync videos in general (regardless of source), please post back.

  • How do I delete items (movies and TV Shows) that are on my iPad that I have moved back to the cloud permanently from the cloud?

    Anyone out there who can help me permantly delete movies and TV Shows from my iCloud that I moved to the Cloud from my iPad Air to the Cloud?

    You can't delete them from iCloud because they aren't stored in your personal account (and don't use any of your storage).  You are only seeing download links so they can be redownloaded from the iTunes store.  You can't delete anything from this list of previously purchased media, but if you don't want to see them on your device you can hide them in iTunes on your computer as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4919.  After hiding them, you won't see them on your device unless you unhide them again.

  • Backing up movie and tv shows I purchased

    I know that I can burn songs that I download from Itunes to cd, but what about movies and tv shows that I buy? Can those be burned to dvd for back up, in case of computer crashing and such?

    When backing up videos from itunes, it has to be burned as a data file.
    You cannot put the tv shows or movies onto a dvd so they can be played in a dvd player.
    Also, burning as a data file takes less space so you can put more files on a disk.
    The best way to do this is to create a playlist to add your movies or tv shows to.
    Then you can burn the playlist to a cd or dvd.
    Hope this helps.

  • How Do I Back Up Movies And Music I Download?

    I usually will download Movies and Music onto my Mac and then sync it up with my iPad and iPod. How do I make sure all my Movies and Music are backed-up from my Mac? Does Time Machine back this stuff up? Thanks!

    Yes, Time Machine will back this up to an external drive. You can also copy your iTunes folder to an external drive to back it up.

  • Downloading movies and TV shows

    How do you download free movies and TV shows to rent onto an iPod Touch? I can't find it in iTunes...

    When I try to sync tv shows to my Ipod touch I'm only given options such as "most viewed" "most recent" "least 3 watched" etc. Is there a way to pick exactly which TV shows I upload when syncing. Thanks
    _Apologies..this shouldn't have been a response but a new post._

    Unless you backup your data, follow these instructions.

    Formatting means erasing, and you normally can't recover from an erase short of redownloading, or copying back from a backup.  For more on backing up and data recovery, read this link:

  • I am missing the iTunes Store Tabs for Music, Movies, and TV Shows.  How do I add them?

    I am missing the iTunes Store Tabs for Music, Movies, and TV shows.  How do I add them?
    It is very strange especially not having the Music Tab.  I desperately want to download music...
    Please help, anyone please, thank you.

    To begin with, I would like to try to explain Apple's confusing nomenclature in regard to iCloud.
    Apple have called the whole cloud thing iCloud, there are a number of features under the iCloud umbrella, some of which require their own login. iTunes is one of these, another is what Apple have unfortunately also called iCloud too.
    You can use the same Apple ID (account) to login to both iCloud and iTunes, but you don't need to and often users will login to each service using a different ID.
    The part that you need to remember is that the services available when you log into iCloud are completely different and unrelated to those when you log in to iTunes. Your iCloud login enables mail, contacts, calendars, find my phone, Back to My Mac, Documents & Data sharing and photostream, it does not affect any of your iTunes services.
    To avoid confusion when discussing your problem, when I mention iCloud, I am referring to the services under the iCloud login, Whereas I will refer to the whole cloud thing as The Cloud.
    To go back to your question; you cannot merge accounts, but perhaps using one account for iCloud and the other for iTunes will resolve the majority of the reasons you needed to merge to begin with.

  • I'm new to Mac. I have an iPhone and a Mac Mini.  My original iTunes was on a Windows computer that crashed.  So, all of my iTunes Music and Movies are gone.  How do I get the movies and music from my iPhone to the new Mac Mini?

    I'm new to Mac. I have an iPhone and a Mac Mini.  My original iTunes was on a Windows computer that crashed.  So, all of my iTunes Music and Movies are gone.  How do I get the movies and music from my iPhone to the new Mac Mini?

    If you still have the crashed Win computer, you may be able to recover your music and movies from the hard drive. If you have a friend with a hard drive USB connection kit and a PC, they should be able to help.  Otherwise, check locally for computer services that might do that for you (I think Best Buy Geek Squad may be able to help). If the drive itself is in good shape, it shouldn't be too expensive. 

  • How do I delete Movies and TV Shows in my iTunes Store download Queue?

    Please help...
    I have Apple TV and I purchase TV shows and Movies via iTunes Store. These programs and movies have successfully downloaded to my Apple TV and I have watched them and deleted them off the Apple TV Hard Drive.
    My problem:
    I do not have much free Hard Drive space on the older laptop that I currently have iTunes running on. Everytime I open iTunes on my laptop it starts downloading the very large movie and TV show files and I do not have enough hard drive space for them and I do not want them now that I have alredy watched them.
    My questions:
    1. Can you delete everything that is currently in my iTunes Store downlonad queue so these programs and movies will not try and download? If so, how?...
    2. Is there a way I can prevent this from happening in the future?
    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    iTunes will not show me where the files reside (by right-clicking and selecting "show file" because the option doesn't exist for TV shows.
    I don't understand, it does exist for tv shows.
    Also, using the "delete" commend does nothing!
    How are you using the delete command if you can't locate the file.
    I have several shows taking up several gigabytes of disk space, and I can't locate them on my hard drive, or remove them from within iTunes!
    Have you tried spotlight.

  • How do you move just your movies and tv shows to an external hard drive and have iTunes recognize that that is where that media is (keeping music on the internal hard drive itself and putting only movies and tv shows on an external hard drive)?

    I'm not sure about how to get iTunes to recognize that my music is in one location (on my MacBook's internal hard drive) and my movies and tv shows are in another (on an external hard drive I purchased).  I know how to make iTunes recognize that all of my iTunes files are on an external hard drive, but not only some of them.  Please help me out.  Thanks.

    While you can do that, it is not a feature of iTunes.  Put your movies on the external drive, then add them to iTunes by dragging the files to iTunes while holding the option (alt) key down so it leaves the files where they are located.  There are other ways to move them if they are already added but they can be more involved and tricky.  If it's just one or two try:  http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=relocateselected

  • How do I back up files and reinstall original disks on my Power Mac G-4 (2000)

    How do I back up files and reinstall original disks on my Power Mac G-4 (yr. 2000). I know that sounds basic but I have very few techno skills. So please "talk down" to me. I had a newer PC (2005) but the hard drive crashed and I am trying to resuscitate this old mac until I can afford to buy a new one. I am in the middle of writing a book (based on Steve Job's life) and must have SOMETHING to write with. Anyone have a better one they can loan me? I am in Maine on the coast. BTW this machine seems to have trouble reading or formatting most CD-disks. Can anyone recommend a type and brand that works well with this model? Thanks for any assistance anyone can render. Here is what I have:
    Machine Name:          Power Mac G4
      Machine Model:          PowerMac3,4
      CPU Type:          PowerPC G4  (2.9)
      Number Of CPUs:          1
      CPU Speed:          467 MHz
      L2 Cache (per CPU):          1 MB
      Memory:          768 MB
      Bus Speed:          133 MHz
      Boot ROM Version:          4.2.8f1

    Why do you want to reformat the drive?  Is it because the machine is running slow?
    Be sure to backup you important files, like the book, daily.
    The cheapest approach would be to try to figure out why the machine is running slow.  Be sure to try safe boot.
    You may want to run these "standard" fixes if the problem persists.
    1) Check the amount of free space on your harddrive.  You should have a several gigs free.
    2) You should run disk utility
          Macintosh-HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility
          a) verify the disk
          b) update your permissions.
    3) Try a safe boot.
         Shutdown your machine.  Hold down the shift key.  Poweron.  Wait awhile; wait awhile while you harddrive
         is being checked.

    4) Another way to correct filesystem problems is into single use mode.
         This page will tell you how to get into single user mode.
         http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1492
        Basically, you hold down the command + s key then  powering on your machine. The command key
        has a little apple symbol on the lower left. It is between the alt/option key and the space bar. 
    4) You may want to run applejack to clean up your machine.
          http://applejack.sourceforge.net/
    6) Run hardware diagnostics.  It's good for a sanity check.
    The older versions of ccc were donationware.
    Here are two utilities for making a complete backup of your internal hard drive.  I've recommend using one of these so that you can create a bootable system  on your external hard drive. ( PPC require a firewire connected drive. )  Once created, you can run your system from the external drive.  Hold down the option key on your keyboard then power on your machine.  This will bring you in startup manager click on the drive image you wish to boot then click on the arrow key to the right.
