    Question iTunes Orphaned Videos

    I know this is more of an iTunes question than an iPad question, but it involves my iPad so I hope you don't mind me posting it here. I find this forum to be the most helpful.

    A while ago I started downloading a couple of TV shows through iTunes but the process was taking so long that I cancelled it and deleted the partial downloads from that area. Now every time I do an update to my apps in iTunes, the download of these videos starts again. They are both hundreds of MB in size. I right-click and delete them each time only to have them return the next time I do an update to my apps.

    The message beside these downloading file names states "orphaned videos in database 2 - do not use".

    Any thoughts?

    You have multiple options

    -simply wait. You have to download movies within a certain time frame. If that passes, you would have to purchase them again
    -let it finish downloading once. This doesn't have to be on your iPad, it is enough if you download it on your desktop.
