    Hello all,

    I have a problem. I bought a touch off ebay and the girl I bought it from had some TV shows that she bought on itunes. She also had a ton of music I didn't want. I copied the stuff off it I wanted, including the tv shows and restored it. Now I want to copy the shows back onto it, but itunes won't let me do it because they were bought on her account (it wants me to log into "my account" (her account) before it will copy them to the touch). It there a utility that will work? If I just copy them with SharePod they don't play because they aren't in the correct place on the touch (I guess they get copied to the music folder).

    Any help?

    There are two possibilities here.

    1. (most likely): Purchases are licensed for a single user. If she has kept the videos for herself and forgotten to remove them from the iPod, then you are not licensed to use them.

    2. If she is transferring the videos to you and has removed them from her own computer, then I don't know how to instruct iTunes to do that.
