Although burning a DVD sounds like an old fashion thing, there are many people still fascinated with it. Making your favorite movies into physical disc is a better way to keep a collection since they cannot be damaged by virus or server crash.

Burning music to CD seems lot more common. You can directly burn the music you purchased from iTunes to CD because there's no DRM on them.

To burn iTunes movies to DVD, you need to remove DRM from the video files and convert the M4V video to VOB format, which is a movie data file contains a majority of the data stored on the disc which includes video, audio, subtitles, DVD menus and so on. If you are wondering how to convert the M4V movies to VOB, you will find the answer on the following passage.
