    I have purchased several movies and t.v. shows from i tunes store, and i have the application showing on my ipod. But when i try and sync it with my pc, they don't appear on the ipod. Do i need to install something? I can watch youtube on it when i go online with it so what am i doing wrong? Please help i feel like i've wasted my money!!!!!!!!

    When syncing, go into the Movies tab and TV shows tab. Select the proper options.

    your post is a little contradictory, you say the application shows on your iPod and that when you sync it does not show on your iPod.

    what do applications have to do with watching movies? could you please be more clear

    By saying apps i meant that when you turn the ipod on there is a picture on the touch screen that says Videos? I also sync the movies and tv shows on the menu as said but it just does not load on the ipod itself. If i go onto youtube through the ipod itself then i can watch videos that people have uploaded etc. But purchased movies and tv shows i have got through itunes on my pc will not load onto the ipod.

    do you have sync movies --> all movies selected?

    also check if your iPod is set to manual this could be a contribution to the problem
