ITunes :: Computer Can't Be Authorized/deauthorized

Jun 20, 2012

There was an error storing your authorization information on this computer.

The required file was not found or has a permissions error. Correct this permissions problem and try again, or deauthorize this computer if the permissions cannot be changed. 

I just made the move to iCloud from MobileMe. Following the directions on iCloud for iTunes to push of applications to this computer. iTunes said this computer was not authorized. Tried to authorize and got the above. I repaired the permissions, got the above again. Tried to deauthorize the computer and got the above again. What file has to be rebuilt. Reinstalled iTunes hoping the file would rebuild. I've deactivated all computers, the iPad and other MacBookPro (authorized with no problem) show up in the devices. When I authorized the other MacBookPro it said it was one of three out of five allowed.  

Ive tried everything I know to no avail. Can't get the 17" authorized.

ITunes :: Says Computer Is Already Authorized, But It's Not

Jul 6, 2012

I noticed that iTunes wasn't updating my purchases on my MBP so checked and it's not listed as an authorized computer in my iTunes account. But when I click "Authorize Computer" it's telling me it's already authorized. You can see from the screenshots that nnone of the the 3 computers listed are MacBook Pros. It's an old MBP running 10.6.8, don't know if that has any bearing.

My computer is for sure authorized to play purchased movies (I've de-authorized and re-authorized). Yet, when I try to play any TV shows that I have purchased, it continually tells me the computer is not authorized and plays just a blank gray screen. I have the newest version of iTunes installed?

ITunes :: Authorized Computer For Playing Songs That Paid For, It Doesn't Play

Mar 27, 2012

I bought a song and was billed for it on iTunes. When I tried to play it, a pop-up said, "This computer is not authorized to play....Would you like to authorize it?" I signed in, clicked the authorize button, and it says, "This computer is already authorized" and the window closed. I still can't play the song. I read online to check with the computer administrator and the file --> song info. It is registered with my email address. All other songs I have bought play with no problems. I heard also I could reinstall iTunes, so I went online and installed iTunes 10.6. It is installed but nothing is changed.

ITunes :: Error - "this Computer Is No Longer Authorized"

Mar 25, 2012

When I tried to sync my iPod the other day, iTunes suddenly decided my computer was no longer authorized to play my purchases.  Then when I authorized it, it said it was already authorized.  After clicking "okay" it took me back to the original message (the "this computer is no longer authorized" one).  It just goes round and round in circles.

I am in process of setting up a new computer system. I've purchased a Windows 7 PC and am migrating my music from a PowerPC Mac. Both systems are active authorized iTunes computers. I set them up to share and used the share utility to import my entire library into the new system.

Every single non-iTunes songs transferred without issue - 27,000+ of them but every single iTunes purchased songs, only 400 of them, did not.

Applications :: ITunes Display Is Not Authorized?

Jan 23, 2010

I've recently begun to get an error message saying that "my display is not authorized to play" TV episodes downloaded from iTunes, and that I need to connect a display that is "HDCP-compatible."

I use a new Mac mini, bought in December, and a 24'' HP display that is also fairly new (purchased last summer). Up until now, I've had no problems playing these episodes on my mini, nor on my older computer (where they were first downloaded).

Both computers were hooked up to the same monitor via mini-DVI-DVI / DVI-HDMI cables. I've searched these forums as well as around the internet, and most of what I've found is from people using mini-displayport.

I also haven't found anyone who randomly had this problem start after having viewed content on their machines successfully. It was literally not happening one day, and then started the next.

ITunes :: Keeps Saying A Song Is Not Authorized To Play?

Jun 13, 2012

I just bought an album on iTunes (same account I always use, the only one computer I have), and for some reason only ONE of the songs is telling me "This song is not authorized to play on your computer." I tried typing in my info to see if that would work, but it didn't, it said this computer is already authorized (which I already knew, because every other song on my iTunes plays, including all the other songs on this particular album). I followed all the tips on the support website for this particular issue and nothing worked. I also went into my account, deauthorized all the computers (my old computers that I don't have anymore were still on there), then reauthorized this one, and still no luck. How do I get this song to play?

ITunes For Mac :: New Album Downloaded / And 1 Song Is Not Authorized To Play

Dec 3, 2014

I just purchased an album from iTunes.  All songs play except 1.  When I attempt to play the fourth song, I'm presented a dialog box telling me that I'm not authorized to play the song on the same computer I used to download it.  When I enter my Mac ID and Password to authorize the song, I receive another dialog telling me that the song is already authorized to play on this computer.  I attempt to play the song, and once again informed that I'm not authorized to play the song, going on to state that I've only authorized two out of the five allowed.   

I've gone into my Mac account, and only three devices are authorized (Mac, iPhone, iPad).  I went ahead an removed authorization on this Mac, then re-added my authorization.  Still, the same song out of 20 will not play due to authorization.

Applications :: Import Old Computer's ITunes Library To New Computer?

Dec 8, 2009

I have all my music on an external HD that I've used for a few years. I told my old computer (1GHz TiBook G4 with Tiger) to export my iTunes library, which it did, as a .xml file. Then, I opened that file on my new iMac, and only about 1/5 of the songs were found, apparently. This doesn't make sense to me, as the iMac is connected to the HD when I import the old library. If it makes a difference, the TiBook was NOT connected to the HD when I exported the library. I have the two computers networked together via Ethernet right now, though.

May 27, 2009

I just got a new macbook 13 inch unibody with the base stats. Anyways, i chose to snag the iPod touch 16 gig since my 8 gig is already full.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Apple Authorized Service Providers

Jul 10, 2009

My late 2008 MBP has been running very hot (with a virtual machine running the other night, it got up to 175F/80C) so I took it in to an Apple Authorized Service Provider today about an hour ago. After reading some of the threads on here about the thermal paste, I figured I'd at least have an AASP look at it first since it's still under warranty. The gentleman there told me it'd be middle of next week before he'd have a diagnosis. Is this a normal timeframe? I guess I assumed that they'd just take a look at it right away or at the latest I'd have to stop back in later today to pick it up, but that's almost a week away just for the diagnosis!

I work in Fort Wayne, IN, so I'm 3 hours from the nearest retail store in Indy, or closer to 4 for Chicago, so this is my only option.

MacBook :: Can't Be Fixed By Factory Authorized Service Center

Apr 13, 2012

It all started with QuickBooks 2012 for Mac. The program hangs and was displaying incorrect dates, etc.. Spoke to QuickBooks and they assured me that it wasn't their software, then spoke to Mac and they said it wasn't their hardware. Took computer into shop, because my bookkeeper's Mac worked fine with my company file. Shop cannot figure out what is wrong. They said that it might have needed to be upgraded to the latest operating system (Lion from Snow Leopard). This did not do the trick. They said that they tested the processor and it didn't show any problems.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7), Was 10.6.7 and was upgraded to Lion
