    I am at wits end and hoping someone has an answer that makes sense.

    iPhone and MBP are authorized to the same iTunes account. iPhone and MBP are paired for sync.

    Rented a movie on my iPhone.

    Next time I synced my iPhone and MBP, it removed the movie from my iPhone without asking, putting it on the MBP.

    I need to move it back to the iPhone so we can watch it on the TV tonight (I have the A/V cable), but iTunes throws an error saying I'm not allowed to do that as this movie is not authorized to play on this mac.

    Full on Stymie and I have a family full of people waiting for this movie tonight.

    I hate, hate, hate, hate DRM for this reason. I paid for something I am being kept from and I have done nothing wrong.

    Oh, and it won't play on the MBP either. It's essentially a $4 1.5GB virtual paper weight.

    Try ddeauthorizing your mac and authorizing it again. Other than that I'm lost because it should work.
