    I bought a movie from itunes so I assume it is already formatted for my iphone. Just in case, I have used the "advanced" tab to create an iphone version and it says it is already formatted. The movie is in my "purchased" library and my "movie" Library. Neither library shows up on my phone where I would sync the movies. HOw do I get the movie into my iphone?

    when your iphone is plugged in, check the settings window for it. is everything checked to copy under the video tab?

    yes. the only thing to check is to move rented movies or television shows.

    You could try setting your iPhone to "manually manage music and videos", in iTunes, then drag the movie over to Movies on the phone

    Click on your Video tab and scroll down past the TV shows and check the movies you want to sync.

    Mine actually works since we're talking about syncing, not manually managing.
