    Hi everyone,

    I am a simple person when it comes to technology, and need some help on a problem. I have just bought an iPad 2, and am super-excited about it, but I have hit a snag:

    I have bought 2 films, which downloaded fine, but when I sync iTunes throws a message that my mac is not authorised to play movies, and that I need to authorise the computer. It was already authorised, so I de-authorised and re-authorised it, but the problem still persists.

    I am dowloading the latest iOS to see if that will help - but any other suggestions? Thanks for your help!
