It doesn't work. It keeps giving me the error message. I don't want to go to apple support page because I already know what they're going to say. "Make sure your device has the lastest version of iTunes or update". But I don't want that as it will mess up my device like it did with my phone. This is very frustrating.

I have the same problem with rented movies but there is NO "down arrow". All these movies have been watched and are no longer valid. This is very frustrating and no solutions anywhere. I've also tried all the advice but still they hang there begging to be downloaded and none of the buttons work. :{
Please help!
