    iTunes is notorious for deciding it is right, and what is on the iPad is wrong. It is usually safest to add everything to iTunes, even make your playlist changes there, then sync back to the iPad.

    The other approach is to never sync with iTunes. I can't advise on that, since I do it the first way.

    One thing that may work, or may not. First, go into iTunes Preferences, the Devices tab, and turn off auto-syncing. Then each time you connect the iPad, before you sync, right click on the iPad in iTunes and choose Transfer Purchases.
