1. Why You Can't Copy iTunes Movie to SD Card Directly

Before proceeding to the detailed steps, we need to know what we need to store iTunes movie on SD card. In fact, there are 4 things we will need:

* iTunes App
* A Mac or Windows computer
* A SD Card that has enough space
* An iTunes M4V video converter

The first three tools you can easily understand, but why we need an iTunes video converter might be a puzzle. This is because all iTunes movies and TV shows are encrypted by Apple's FairPlay DRM technology in special M4V format. In result, you're not allowed to copy iTunes movies to other device or share with others, even though you've bought them. That's why we need an iTunes M4v video converter to remove such restriction.

Among multiple similar tools in the current market, TunesKit M4V Converter is strongly recommended here because of its ease of use and lossless quality features. This smart software can help you get rid of the DRM limitation first and convert iTunes movies to MP4, MOV, AVI or other common video formats, so that you can then directly transfer them to SD card. It's by far the fastest solution to convert iTunes movies while preserving almost 100% original quality, including Dolby 5.1 audios, CC subtitles, etc.
