Aren't these the movies that are in the $5 dollar bargain bin at walmart? Abott and Costello? At WalMart. The Three Stooges? At WalMart.

Anyone know what file format it comes in if you buy the download?  Just wondering if I would be able to burn my own DVD copy or if they lock it somehow.  Thanks in advance.
