My Itunes is filled with imported CD's or Itunes purchased music. About half the songs play on my imac now and with the other half I keep getting the Authorize notice. I submit my password and get a message saying the imac is already authorized. When i click to play the song the same message appears asking me to authorize the song with my password again. I have reloaded Itunes 8, unauthorized and reauthorized my computer....nothing allows me to play the music I paid for. I thought Apple was supposed to be easy!!!
I have OS X on my Mac.
Quit all applications except Finder.
Open Finder and choose Go...Go To Folder
Type /Users/Shared/SC Info and click Go
(View as columns)

Restart the computer and open Itunes
Everything worked fine after for me

Depending on the size of the existing library, you can do it manually by downloading all of those files to your iMac over a network (this may take some time, depending on how much music you have) Then: 1. Launch iTunes 2. Select the iTunes drop down menu at the top of the screen 3. Select "Preferences". 4. Select "Advanced" to the far right of the window The first input field allows you to specify the folder that iTunes uses for your music. Change this to match the location of your newly transferred music. 5. Uncheck the box that reads "Copy files to itunes Media folder when adding to library" 6. Select "OK" in the bottom right corner of this window. 7. Press command (apple) and "O", iTunes will open a window allowing you to add songs to your library. Select the folder where you have just located all of your music, then select "Open" in the bottom right corner of the window. It is not necessary to individually select each song, just the main file. ITunes will now import your music into its library. This may take a few minutes, depending on the amount of music.
continue downloading your mp3 / mp4 files with limewire (frostwire)..its okay...but limewire will never (and neither will any other non apple software) comply with itunes....so lets import the files (top left hand corner) using itunes (import from the folder you have download to) if its in xyz music that is where we will import from...once you have all the music onto itunes click & hold music library of itunes...(top left is itunes /bottom is your ipod if connected)...drag down to music of ipod let it go...once you do this the conversion takes place depending on how many songs u put in 1 - 3mins tops.............have fun dont forget to share mp3 files on limewire/frostwire
What format are the songs in, ie- mp3 / wma etc. make sure the device you are trying to play your cd on recognises these formats. if unsure compare the format of the songs, to the songs that do and don't work, the ones that won't play are probably in a format not recognised by your player, this is common in older or cheaper players.
Open iTunes and on the top bar click on edit the preferences and choose advanced. you will see the path to you itunes library (ie: your music) If you need to change this your ipod will not find song if you have synced it from playlists. but anyway thats where it is.
There could be one of two probelms. Either the files aren't coppied into the itunes music folder when you import them, and they have been deleted from their original location. This means that the link itunes uses to points to the files obviously wont find them since they're gone.
To change this go to preferences, then advanced, then tick the check box next to import music into itunes folder.
Or, when you upgraded, the itunes files were somehow moved and itunes can't find them any more. You can correct this by clicking on the file to play music, and when it asks you if you want to locate the file, select yes, and search through your computer to your itunes folder (or wherever the files are kept), and select those as your music files. It should now build a new link to that file, and play your music.
I would un install itunes completely and just re download it from the apple website and the latest version should fix the issue.
Might be that your itunes library is corrupted so before you install the newest one if you go to music and open the itunes folder and delete the library files that or go to macintosh hd --> users --> your username --> music --> itunes --> delete all library files
if you need more help post back and I will help further.
if you you use realplayer you can import all the files off of it. as far is i know this only works with music files not video or music that are non plus. make sure that when you import the files that you are importing as mp3.
