I used the pc download facility on iTunes-Movies on a laptop this year to rent movies when on the road or on holiday. It beats watching German or Italian TV, and only costs Â£2/3 or so a rental. I tried to use the same facility on the NC10 but althought it downloads the movie on to the harddrive, it will not play. Looking at the iTunes minimum requirements it would appear that the NC10 does not have the power to run the movie size that iTunes downloads. I tried a TV programme download from iTunes, one from The Wire, and that worked OK, good picture and really good audio with a couple of speakers working from the headphone slot. Any Ideas?
ps thanks for developing this site. Just a trawl through it has given me a better insight into the potential of the NC10 and solved my problem of loading a copy of Office 2003 without having a cd driver. I networked it as suggested and hit the setup icon in the Office folder and the application ran effortlessly from the cd drive on my main laptop. I had a spare licence as it was a Home and Student edition that comes with 3 Licences.November 28, 2008 at 10:14 pm #170548PsychNC10Member
Bumping this thread..
Is it just a duplicate of other info which is why no one has responded yet?
I assume 2gb ram would help with itunes, no?November 29, 2008 at 2:55 am #170547undoMember
I saw your post earlier but I’ve never rented a movie at iTunes. I have purchased (and downloaded a few free) TV shows and like you I have no problem playing them, except for some tearing at full screen during fast motion scenes. Have you checked the discussion forums at apple.com?

This site has a very strange and IMHO cumbersome way to link things…
I figured it out but it took some doing.December 2, 2008 at 9:27 pm #170544BeckyMember
This evening, I bought a movie through iTunes. Not sure why the original poster is having trouble, but it plays absolutely fine for me. Haven’t tried a rental, but I don’t see why that would be any different.December 3, 2008 at 12:47 pm #170546miket1Member
Thanks for the post. I went back to my rentals in iTunes and tried to play one of the movies that I had rented 2 weeks ago. It worked fine today. Don’t know what happened on day one. Thanks for posting it jogged me into trying it again or else I would have gone on believing that Itunes and the NC10 were not made for each other. For interest I did go to the apple forums as suggested but the only posting I could find was one that said Netbooks couldn’t run iTunes movies. I might go back and tell them that you can on a samsung but I will leave it a bit until I have tried some more downloads.Thanks again. By the way I do have the 2gb of memoryDecember 3, 2008 at 3:14 pm #170545BeckyMember
That’s great news miket1, thanks for popping back and letting us know. I expect some people might have been concerned about this and it’s a relief to know there doesn’t seem to be a problem after all. 🙂
