1. DRM removal tool- Pavtube ChewTune ($29). Click to purchase the app or download a trial from here (Windows 7 only)- a trial puts watermark on converted videos. If you work with Mac, get ChewTune for Mac instead. The below guide uses ChewTune for Windows screenshots, the way encoding movies to nabi on Mac is about the same.

2. iTunes 10.5 or later. Before conversion you need to change iTunes options, set iTunes not to remember playback position
