How to trnasfer vides to ipad without syncing and erasing

I have an ipad that was connected to another computer using i tunes. I had to wipe that that system and rebuild it. Now I have my ipad connected to anther win7 system and I installed itunes to transfer some videos over to it.

But when I go to sync it wants to erase the ipad before syncing. How can I just get the videos on the ipad without wiping the ipad.

It's crazy that I have t wipe the ipad now.

ant thoughts?

You should be able to authorize the iPad on your new computer.  When I built my new machine I was able to synch my iPad to the new comptuer without having to wipe it.

What are some of the dialog boxes you are getting?  I did this a few months ago and the steps are foggy now.  

You could always break down and call an Apple store to talk to an iTard. :-)  They would be able to talk you through the steps.

No idea what is meant by "Use iphonebrowser or phone to mac applications "

Please explain.

Also, when syscing now, I don't get the erase message, but i get "“You do not have enough access privileges for this operation”

I've turned off UAC, and tried running itunes as "run as admin"

Any thoughts?

Have you tried calling Apple support?  This is a fairly common thing to do and they should be able to walk you through it quickly.
