I purchased a movie in HD thru itunes on my iphone 5 and can watch it on my iphone with no problem. The movie shows up in my itunes account but i cannot get it to transfer to my ipad. What am I missing?

    From what I can tell from this tech spec, the iPad 3 does not support HD video playback:

    iPad (3rd generation) - Technical Specifications

     

    Contrasting what is in the spec above to the 4th generation iPad, I see the 4th gen does specify HD video playback.

     

    So I think that's the issue.  You will have to load the SD version of the video on your iPad.

    The third generation iPad came out (in the U.S.) in March, 2012.  The fourth generation came out in late October, 2012.  The fourth generation has the lightning to USB connector, while the third generation has the 30-pin to USB connector.

     

    You can share parts of your iTunes library with another computer.  On the computer you're sharing with, just go to Store > Authorize This Computer and allow your Apple ID's files to be accessed.
