    So I bought (not rented) a movie on the go on my iPad, when I tried to sync with my pc, it flashed a warning that all content on the iPad would be lost!!!

    Is here a way for me to get this movie moved to my pc library?

    It sounds like you tried to sync it with a different PC than you did the first time.

    You should be able to right click the iPad in the iTunes sidebar and choose "Transfer Purchases."

    I would think you should be able to save it in the iTunes library. Just as if when you purchase a song on the fly and sync, it is added to your iTunes library on the Mac or pc.

    Thank you very much. That worked.

    (it was the same PC as I have always synced with, I had just never synced movies yet)

    I just purchased Avatar on my iPad. After I transferred purchases to my Mac the movie is now on my mac and still on my ipad. I would have thought the movie could only be on one device.

    That applies to rentals.
