I am travelling / I rented 2 ,movies for the plane but did it from an old 32bit Macbook. They transferred fine to the iPad but when I tried to open them I got the "Cannot Open" message. Result - did not get to watch my rentals ! I have an idea the fact that I purchased on an old generation Macbook Pro is the issue ?

They are still on my iPad (and presumably still somewhow registered in my account)

I happen to be travelling with a 64bit Macbook Pro (should have purchased from here in the first place !!)

I am thinking there might be a way to resync my iPad with my 64 bit Macbook and resync the movies so that I can at least watch them on of before the flight home next week

Ideas appreciated ?
QUOTE Thanks

When doc'd to your Mac look in iTunes in Devices select your iPad and then look at movies then select either all or just the titles you want then re-sync.
