Default Netflix... Oops...

What happens if you accidentally return the Sharpie-labeled movie to Netflix, instead of their nicely printed label version?

Just askin'.

For a friend. We'll call him "Ernie". I'm betting they'll just ask for their copy back, as well as cancelling his subscription...

I do not have a subscription to Netflix... it is not me...

Ahhh...had that happen to a friend before. All they did was count the movie as being late and charged him some sort of fee until he returned it.
Almost as if you returned the case without the movie.

Much funnier that the "backup" copy was returned though.

Yes you can BACK UP DVDs. Some are way worse than others. Narnia being the hardest so far I think.

If you have an Ipod that plays movies you can convert them and save them to it. Friend does it.

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I always worry that I will make that mistake. Narnia was a bear, but I got it to work using another free program. Do any of you know how to get transfer two smaller movies to one 4.7G DVD?

pm me

Yah, I believe that it was the above software combo and the 'backing up' procedure that may get my buddy in trouble...
