I tried to load the digital copy of I Am Legend and it won't do so. I opened the disc and tried various items in it and I keep getting the dialogs stating "can't find DVD_Authentication page". I'm not an expert but it seems that this is for Windows only and not a Mac. Anyone else having problems with this?

HiDef Digest claims it is iTunes compatible, which means Mac or PC. It does have to use iTunes to connect to a server somewhere for authentication.

Perhaps there is a network connection issue?

I have done a few of these, and there were a few issues getting connected.

Hi Brian,

I've done several myself with no problem until now. Ot seems that it can't connect to a server somewhere out there. I'll keep trying.

That can't be right. No way Apple would allow a DC that works only on Windows based iTunes.

No doubt there is a problem here, but I can't believe that it would not work on a Mac. I vote bad disc or some other issue not specifically related to the fact that you are on a Mac.

Nope, same problem here. I have a PC with iTunes. And iTunes is definitely not recognizing it. I think it is the same as the "Dark City" title. I have been able to load all of my digital copies on to iTunes with no problem. Except for "Dark City", and now "I am Legend". Not quite sure what the problem is. But if you look on both BD's it only states PC and Windows. Normally it also states iTunes or iPod/Phone. When anybody finds out more. Or how to fix it, please let me know.....

Make sure that you have the latest system and iTunes software. Then do a repair permissions with Disk Utility.

Hi Bob,

I have the latest O/S for my Mac(s), have the latest iTunes, and have repaired permissions. Still no go. The best I can get is:

Safari can’t open the page “http://dds_authenticate/” because it can’t find the server “dds_authenticate”.

Also, there is NO mention of iTunes or Mac on the insert that contains the authorization code. I still feel this is for Windows only. It won't show in iTunes under the Devices section.

I have the same issue with the new Star Trek movie. But what I found on the disk is a DMG file. With this movie, I opened the DMG and launched the APP inside it. This is working. Hope this helps.

I lent my buddy my Star Trek digital copy (from the Blu-Ray set), and for love nor money, he could not get it work on his Mac

I then installed it on my PC, and it ran first go....
