Maybe someone here can help me with a frustrating problem.
We have a DVD copy of Star Trek and one of Harry Potter 6 that came with digital copies. I followed all of the instructions to download the digital copies onto my desktop. Each movie came with two copies - a full version and a portable version. I thought this was great, because it meant that I could move the portable version onto my netbook for traveling purposes.
However, once I transferred the portable file to my netbook, the authorization screen popped up when I hit play and asked for the authorization code - which then told me that it had been used for its one time and could not be used again.
I was under the impression that the portable copy was meant to be transferred to another device. It's pretty useless on my big desktop computer with the 19 inch widescreen monitor. Is there something I'm missing? Some way to transfer a legally purchased copy from one of my machines to another? Or are the digital copies stuck on my desktop? If so, that's a pretty useless feature.
I'm very confused.

VLC Player will bypass any digital rights management, is lighter on system resources than Windows Media--and with no reduction in quality. Add the XP Codec Pack and **** from Free-Codecs.com, and it will play anything but h264 and some Realplayer filetypes. Media Player Classic and Real Alternative will play those. Get 'em, and never have a problem again.
