Where can I get movies to Download to my Zune for FREE, and how do I get them onto my Zune? Answered

I have a Zune and would like to put some movies on it, so when we go motorhoming, we can watch a movie. I'm not real computer savy, so need to know it in easy terms. Thanks.

There are many films available that are offered freely on the net. You're looking for open-source projects, podcasts or copyright-expired cinema. The links above should give you a start.

As to converting them to play on your Zune... I don't have one... but lucky you.

Downloading movies that you don't own is piracy, and frowned upon on the site (we're all about sharing, but not plagiarism)

Either way - to 'rip' movies you own from dvd to a format your zune can use (wmv most likely) you can use various programs - dvdshrink comes to mind.

its a 2-step process, first you have to extract the dvd video files (which are encrypted, poorly), then convert to zune-esque file format.
