we set up OUR Apple account using my then wife's (now ex-wife's) e-mail address and created OUR apple ID account under her name. Fast forward eight years, it has now been two years since my divorce and I have tons of music that was purchased using my ex-wife's Apple account. During the last two years, playing the music that was purchased with her account has not been an issue. I select my music that I want to listen to, hit play and it played. But ever since the latest update from iTunes, I now have a HUGE issue. The latest update requires computers to now be "authorized" to play purchased music and any purchased music must now be verified by the account ID and password used to purchase the music. This has created a catastrophe because my ex-wife has now of course changed her Apple ID password which means I no longer have access to about $1000 worth of music because of this new authorization! This has made me livid to say the least because this seems to be an arbitrary and completely random bull crap requirement from Apple. I have tried to resolve this through Apple support but since it is now nearly impossible to speak to a human at Apple, the email method of communication has yielded diddly squat. I doubt this "forum method" will be any more productive but I have to try. I have begun a social media campaign against Apple's methods of burying random and arbitrary requirements deep within their regular software updates. I've already paid for the music once. I won't pay for it again.
Purchased songs from the iTunes Store that I have played for months are now unplayable because I am not authorized to listen to them. This just happened all of a sudden. I was presented with a dialogue box saying that I have authorized the maximum amount of computers (5). How did this happen and how do I go about fixing it? How would I de-authorize a computer?
I downloaded a song and it will not play. It keeps saying I need to authorize on the computer. I do it and it won't play it and says the same thing. What do I do? Oh and I purchased it on my laptop and it won't play on my laptop or Ipod.
Hello members just purchased a used iBook G4 for $200. This is my first mac, so things are very confusing for me being that I've only used PC for so many years. The one issue I am having as of now, Lime Wire isn't working. I've read a few different discussion on this topic and I guess it's due to my software...
Machine Name:iBook G4 Machine Model:PowerBook6,5 CPU Type:PowerPC G4 (1.1) Number Of CPUs:1 CPU Speed:1.07 GHz L2 Cache (per CPU):512 KB Memory:1.25 GB Bus Speed:133 MHz Boot ROM Version:4.8.5f0
Just purchased my first mac, iv'e been a pc user for almost 10 yrs and i finally switched to a mac. What programs are good to DL music. On my pc i use to use Lime Wire or Bear Share. Can I use these or does anyone have a better program that is Mac friendly ?
My itunes have been like that for ages, since I got it.... How do i authorize my iTunes???? I know how to but I don't know how to fix the problem in the image attached Want to get some apps for my new iPod
i am trying to download some music using torrents, but the download stops every 20 seconds, telling me the startup disk is almost full, but when i check my harddisk, i got like 96 gb free, so is there something wrong with my computer or am i just using a corrupt torrent file or something?
I have music that I own but recently transfered to my new mac. When I attempt to authorize my music on this computer, I get the message "Machine authorization successful", but when I try to play the music, it asks for my iTunes user/pass again. It constantly says I am authorized, but never plays. I tried deauthorizing all computers and trying again, but this does not work.
Now that I've moved to iCloud I can't download from my Mac to an iPod.
Message said this computer is not authorized. I've followed the steps to authorize my computer, but when I go into "store" there is no option to "authorize my computer", went into "advance", still no "authorize my computer".
I have downloaded a movie in itunes on my mac along with an album. It let me sync the album with my ipad but said I needed to authorize my computer. My computer is authorized but my ipad isn't, how do I authorize my ipad?
Is there a way to remotely deauthorize computers from itunes? My songs were all authorized to play on my computer all of a sudden some are deauthorized and are asking me to authorize it again. Then it says 5 computers are already authorized. I only have 2 in my house right now. The screwy thing is they used to be authorized on this computer anyway.
Is there any way to de-authorize all computers associated with an iTunes account without going to each machine?
Reason being... I had a few computers that I've since reloaded that I forgot to de-authorize them before wiping them out. Unfortunately, they must be still in there because I'm not able to add any of my new reloaded machines. (says I've reached my 5 machine max)
