My movies are taking over my iPad 2 hard drive.  I purchased movies on my iPad 2 and would like to move them to my macbook for storage.

iTunes.  The iPad does not have a hard drive.  If you have Sync Movies selected under the Movies tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes, movies purchased from the iTunes store direct with your iPad would be copied to your iTunes library automatically the first time you sync your iPad with iTunes after doing so.  If you want to remove a movie from your iPad without deleting the movie, deselect the movie under the Movies tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes followed by a sync. To add/remove movies, select/deselect the movies under the Movies tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes followed by a sync.  If Sync Movies is not selected under the Movies tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes, with your iPad connected at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPad. After confirming all movies on your iPad are now in your iTunes library, select Sync Movies under the Movies tab. Deselect the movies below that you want removed from your iPad followed by a sync.
