Problem

Alright, I had about 8 pages of games on my ipod that I bought from the ipod touch with wi-fi at my sisters. I synched all the stuff to my Itunes and it deleted about 38 games off my ipod, and kept the rest on my ipod. The thing is, the deleted ones are on my Itunes account, but when I try to synch they wont synch over, whats the problem? =\

You may need to authorize them. Assuming you are saying that they won't go to your ipod.

Wrong Section, but I will help anyway.
I think the problem is that you have the apps unchecked on the iPod Device Menu. When the device is connected, click on the icon on the left hand side and then on applications tab on the top right. Simply check/uncheck each app then sync.

Ok not sure what the problem is but here is what I would do. Download all the missing games onto your computer since you have already downloaded them doing so again is free. Then since thy are now on your computer just resync. It should work.
Edit: actually try what LBG said first. That is more likely it.

I have all checked, but I have dial up so that would take forever. Anyways I could actually do without some of the games, but some I need >.<

The only thing I could think of is the warning that pops up when you sync. It should say something like "There are apps on your iPod that are not present on your iTunes. Would you like to transfer them? If you do not, these applications will be deleted from your iPod."

the transfer of apps from iTunes to the iPod doesn't use an Internet connection, it's just incredibly slow for everyone.

Why would all the stuff be on my computer after synching, and then it said removing the certain stuff........ I can live without them since all my good games that i love are still here....

Games i lost:
Touch physics, Tilt, Puzzle quest, Jewel Quest II, Field Runners, Collapse Chaos, Arvale, AND A LOT MORE!!!

At least i got most my good games i can think of, hopefully didnt lose anything i loved.... Im look now and see most of the games i play.

I just noticed some stuff i had isnt under my applications, so they are gone....
