Is there a way to backup iTunes video from my iPad?

    I have an iPod that I sync with iTunes, then when I got my iPad, I sync'd it with the same computer/iTunes. I then went on to download a bunch of TV shows from iTunes directly from my iPad. So they're on my iPad, but not in my PC iTunes library. I would like to back the TV shows up, and hopefully even be able to play them on my iPod (they're all sync'd to the same Apple ID). When I click the box to sync TV shows, though, I get a warning that it will erase all shows on my iPad and sync whatever's on my PC to the iPad. I even tried syncing the iPad to another computer, with a fresh iTunes install, thinking I could copy the shows from the iPad to that computer, then transfer them to the original iTunes library. Even though there was nothing *in* the fresh iTunes library, I got the same message, saying it would erase my iPad and backup from iTunes.

    I've Googled this without much luck. Please tell me there's some way I can backup the shows from my iPad. Guessing I shouldn't buy directly from my iPad in the future. :(

    In order to back up your purchases on your ipad to your itunes library click on "file" and "back up purchases or tranfer purchases" in itunes. (Can't remember because I don't have itunes in front of me at the moment)..Once you do this make sure they are backed up in your library before synching so you won't lose anything. This should fix your problem.

    I already have backed up everything that's in iTunes on my computer. The problem is that I have no way of getting what's on the *iPad* onto the computer. When I try to sync, the only option it gives me is to erase the *iPad* and replace with what's already in iTunes on the computer. I have 2 seasons of TV episodes that currently only exist on my iPad, and I don't want to lose them. =/
