moving content to another account

So I'm in a complicated situation:

I have the following devices synced to each other:
1. iPhone & Windows laptop
2. iPod & Macbook

They are all under one iTunes account. Basically, I had the iPhone and Windows laptop before the other 2 and have been syncing them all the time. Then I got the iPod and Macbook and decided to keep the two pairs separate by keeping my music only on my iPod and having "everyday" apps on my iPhone because I don't carry my iPod everywhere. At that time, I wasn't worried about anything, as I could easily transfer purchases. Now, my use of the two pairs have evolved and I see myself using the first pair for personal uses and the second pair for work. Thus, I now have completely different apps on each pair.

Now, I'm trying to create a new iTunes account for the first pair. I just created the new iTunes account for the first pair and logged into that account on both the iPhone and the Windows laptop. But when I try to transfer my purchases, it says I have to authorize the computer. Upon clicking "authorize" it tries to get me to login to my first account, thus disabling me from transferring the purchases. Also, when I try to update my apps on the windows laptop while logged into my new iTunes account, it tells me that I can't update it because I don't have the original version of the apps.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me do this, if it is at all possible. Thanks
