Everywhere you see help & instructions on Syncing but it's always about getting material FROM iTunes to your iPad or iPod or iPhone. Does anyone have instructions on transfering purchases FROM iPAD TO iTUNES? I have so many downloads (purchases and free apps) on my iPad and my iPhone 4 but when I connect them to my iTunes computer it says it's going to erase everything on the iPad except for what's already on iTunes. I want exactly the opposite: to have everything that's now on my iPad/iPhone equipment to be on iTunes, and nothing else. I'm still on OS 3 with the iPad and on OS 4.0 on the iPhone and I dare not upgrade until I get these syncing issues resolved. (why am I "paranoid" ?? Because in the past I've lost a lot of $$$ on purchased songs, videos, apps from trying to "sync") In fact, to avoid this, I've mostly stopped buying ANY music via iTunes, and just buy the whole CD from Amazon; that way they definitely aren't going to just disappear into thin air. Thanks.
