Just rented movies or others that you own? did you start watching them and stop? if so they may have auto deleted, cause after you start watching you only have 24 hours to watch. Just my guess..

Are they rented from iTunes, or did you rent the DVDs and rip them to your computer?

Are they showing up in your iTunes library, and do you have checkboxes next to the movies, as well as next to the appropriate setting in the sync configuration?

Can you show a screenshot of the sync settings for the Videos tab? On mine, when my iPhone is connected, the rented videos section shows up at the top, (of which I have none) then there are TV shows, and at the bottom is the option for me to sync selected movies. I manually added all those movies to my iTunes library, but I have to check them both in the iTunes library list AND in the sync screen for which movies to sync to the phone.

You can download and convert some online movies and synch them to your itune. Maybe it's better.
You can search "flv to video converter" on google.com for more info.
Hopefully it's helpful.
