    Hi - any feedback grateful.

    I rented my first movie from Itunes and when i synched it with my ipod touch it did warn me that songs, tv shows and movies that were on my ipod would be deleted. When it said 'songs' i presumed it meant song videos not my actual tunes itself.
    Why does the ipod touch delete my tunes when i synch a movie? I really cant see why? And if if it does that all the time then i cant be bothered to get movies as it is just hassle reloading the tunes back on to the ipod.

    Make sure you have enough space on the ipod to hold it. If its not that. I can't really help. Sorry

    Don't sync.
    Next time, simply drag the movie from your itunes library onto your ipod rather than syncing. That should prevent deletion...
