Itunes wont sync apps to ipod

Hey, can anybody help me, im trying to install some new beta files onto my ipod but for some reason itunes wont sync any apps onto my ipod. It says looking for purchased items on ipod touch, then it says syncing ipod touch, then it stops and no apps are installed. Can anyone help? I have tried Going through the list of apps and selecting them by hand, doesnt work. Also i have tried transferring purchases from ipod touch first then syncing, doesnt work. Im getting really annoyed. And btw i have the new version of itunes, does this affect it?

I don't see the point in signatures..... So here's a gun to keep you entertained *""

strange try to authorize the comp then transfer apps
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1848

if that doesn't work then try to make a new library then transfer apps, though may take a while
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1589
unless you know where your .ipa files were, in which then you could just drag them into itunes and they would install into the new library

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, when I went to authorize the pc it said "Already authorized", as this is the pc I always use. I don't really get the whole new library thing so I'll leave that for now.

Another thing I've noticed is that it tries to sync all the apps purchased from my American account, then nothing happens and it stops syncing, is it possible apple have done something to prevent having accounts from 2 countries?

(UK huh? Sorry, figured you were australian from your username )

Anway, logout, login to each account in turn, deauthorize it, and reauthorize it immediately after. After you've done both, sync your phone again.

Back when I had to juggle three iTunes accounts I ran into this problem a few times.
