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.
