Sounds to me what you have done is put it in iTunes as a different file format or resolution that your iPad can handle.
I would download "handbrake" a open source video conversion program that will take your snatch movie file and format it to the correct aspect ratio, size and file format for your iPad. It's only a small 4 mb program, and easy to use. A very obvious iPad option is on the output options on right. I can then sleep knowing you will be able to watch this classic on your iPad. Schweeet!
OK - did you download this to iTunes on the iPad? Not sure why the synchronisation. The normal way - at least the one that I use - to rent a video is to download it directly to my iPad. I've never synchronised my iPad after day 1.

The sync process tries to make the iPad and the PC 'identical', so the sync process may have removed the video from your iPad. I cannot recall whether you can download rented movies again during the valid rental period, but it might be worth a try - and just keep the iPad and the PC away from each other. As one Forum member has as his tag line "Think before you sync or you may sink".
