    I get the message that the computer isn't authorized so I authorize it and yet still get the message so I am unable to transfer files. No matter what I try (deleting SC Folder as suggested at the link below) nothing works.

    Anyone had this problem and found a solution for it?

    What is the exact error message you are getting?

    What kind of files are you wanting to transfer.

    Are you doing a sync to transfer these files?

    I'm trying to transfer a game I bought from the App Store to my iPad. I bought it via iTunes on my computer because it was a large size (1.89 GB) and it's easier to see the progress of downloads from within iTunes. Yes, I'm doing a sync to attempt to transfer the game but that is when I get the following error message:

    "The iPad could not be synced because this computer is no longer authorized for purchased items that are on this iPad"

    I have already tried to reauthorize, restart my computer, and then re-sync. Doesn't work as that message still appears and the game is synced to the iPad.

    Can you download the game on the iPad directly from the app store? If I had to completely guess without seeing anything, I would guess that your computer is signed in as bob@someemail.com and your iPad is signed in as dave@someemail.com. The app will not transfer from the purchased bob account to the unpurchased dave account. This is a complete guess.

    But a good guess. I was going to ask the OP if iTunes and his iPad are all on the same account. Sounds like they are not.
