    With your iPad connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPad.

    After doing this, leave Sync Movies selected under the Movies tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes with the movies selected below that you want available on your iPad. After purchasing/downloading a movie from the iTunes store on your iPad, the movie should be copied to your iTunes library the first time you sync your iPad with iTunes after doing so.

    The same applies to purchasing music and/or 3rd party apps with your iPad.

    Perfect! Been looking for this solution to transfer my "Lost" seasons to my computer after purchasing on the iPad. Worked flawlessly.

    Thanks for solving this issue!

    I seem to have a similar problem. I can synch movies rented in iTunes on my PC to my iPad without a problem. I can't seem to synch movies purchased in iTunes on my PC to my iPad. Any idea how that might work?

    PS:  It's not done via iTunes, it's done outside of it e.g. on a Mac via iPhoto, Aperture or Image Capture

    In order to prevent the loss of valued purchases from your iPhone or iPad, you may need to back up your important purchased items to somewhere safe, your computer or iTunes library, for example. You can transfer purchases manually before you sync your iPhone or iPad to iTunes.And use the Coolmuster iPhone iPad iPod to computer transfer to help you.
