This software fully supports all kinds of DVD, such as regular DVD movie and DVD MTV. DVD MTV will have several titles, so you can select the desire MTV to convert.

Format: This software can convert DVD to WMV and MP4 format which are fit for Zune2 and zune1 player, it also can extract audio track from DVD and save as MP3 and WMA format which are fit for any other MP3 player. If you care about video quality, you can select “Zune (640*480) Windows Media Video (WMV)” format, the quality is perfect, but it will take a little longer time to convert video.

After all things done, click “Start” to start conversion.

As I know, you just need to use your usb cable and connect the zune to the xbox 360
then go to the your media section of the xbox 360
you should see the zune logo and the name you designated for your zune

No, you canít do that, because the movie has DRM copy-protection, it can be used only on Apple products. If you want to put iTunes rentals movie on Zune, you have to remove the DRM at first, but itís difficult to do that. Or you may try this software, hope they help.
