    If you rented it directly from the iPad it should show up in the Videos app once it finishes downloading. You'll need to be on a WiFi network for the download.

    If you are not sure if it has downloaded, go to into the iTunes Store on your App and select the Downloads icon at the bottom of the screen. You should see any ongoing or paused downloads there. If it's paused make sure you have a good WiFi connection and will stay there for a couple hours before you ask it to resume.

    If you used iTunes on your computer then it probably isn't synced yet.

    Connect your iPad, select it in iTunes and go to the Movies tab. Make sure Sync Movies is selected. Turn off the automatically include option and you will see a list of all the movies currently in iTunes that can be synced to your iPad.

    If it isn't there, make sure the movie has finished downloading. If iTunes isn't actively downloading it, go to the Store menu and Check for Available Downloads.

    Unless you want to use one of the automatic settings, just select the movie you want by checking the box next to it. Sync your iPad. It will probably take a while. Movies tend to be big.

    I did download to my iPad but it said there were no videos in my video app. And when I try to download again from iTunes it tells me it was already rented.

    Maybe the iPod app, though I don't know why it would be there. I'm afraid I don't have any other ideas.

    I am sure you have checked this but when I go to my videos app I find my rented movie under the heading at the top which says "rentals". This is, of course, when I download direct to ipad, which I always do.

    I have never successfully downloaded a purchased or rented movie on my iPad. It takes 3 hours, get to within a few seconds of being finished, then gives me an error- tap to retry- but does not work. Since I did it directly on my iPad, not on the PC, it does not show in iTunes downloads on the PC, nor in videos on the iPad. Saying it again- I HATE iTunes!! Their response to me was, download it onto a PC, then transfer. Unacceptable, as they advertise download and watch directly on iPad!! I stopped paying $5 or more per movie, got Netflix for $8 per month, and can watch movies instantly - no 3 hour download time!

    I also downloaded two movies from iTunes to my iPad...it took forever and I cannot find them. I have been charged. This is ridiculous.

    Go to the video app and it defaults to movies. there is another tab at the top of the screen for "rentals". Click on this and you will find your rented movies.
