    Hi everyone,

    I haven't posted for a while, but I lurk a lot and am glad to be back. Basically, I have some videos on my iPhone I bought from iTunes, which are also on the hard drive of my battery-looks-to-be-dead iBook G4. I want to copy the videos onto iTunes on my new MacBook Pro (thank you so much for great new job and great boss!) but the only option in iTunes seems to be to transfer content the other way around.

    Basically I have Futurama I purchased on my iPhone and want to put it on my MBP- how do I do this? I can find oodles of information for transferring in the opposite direction, but nothing for what I want to do.

    Many thanks,

    Melissa.

    Before you connect the iPhone to the Mac, authorize the computer in iTunes. When you connect the iPhone it may ask to Erase & Sync but it will also present an option to Transfer Purchases. In the odd event it does not you can manually tell iTunes to transfer purchases from the iPhone in the File menu. Instructions to be found here.
