1. Why Can't You Copy iTunes Movies to USB Flash Drive Directly?

Many of you might be confused why you can't directly transfer movies from iTunes to USB flash drive, just like other video files do. That's because unlike the common videos, iTunes movies and episodes are copy-protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM, which prevents you from copying any iTunes movie to USB stick and other non-Apple devices for playback. Therefore, your USB flash drive will not recognize the DRM-protected iTunes movies properly. Currently the only way to make the iTunes DRM movies readable by USB is to remove DRM protection from iTunes movies before transferring them to the USB drive.

In this case, TunesKit iTunes M4V Converter (Mac & Windows) will do the trick for you. It's one of the best iTunes DRM removal tools to help you bypass DRM restriction from iTunes movies to make you transfer DRM-free iTunes movies to USB flash drive freely. While removing the DRM, this magic software can also convert the DRM'd iTunes M4V movies to plain MP4 format with nearly 100% original quality preserved, as well as the original Dolby 5.1 audio track of the iTunes movies.
