SOURCE: bought ipod from pawn shop

the Ipod once you hook it up to the computer becomes like an external hard drive. hook it up go into my computer look for what looks like a new drive then open it up. once you do that go to edit select all then go down to delete click on it. it should get rid of all the files that are there. to put new ones on the ipod find the songs that you want and drag and drop them in the ipod drive.

SOURCE: authorized computer not playing songs from either authorized account

I ended up instant-messaging Apple, and the customer service rep had to send me a few new songs to download. That process triggered the authorization and everything else came on line.

How do i sync my ipad with my macbook pro?


You can choose iTunes to sync iPad with your Mac, but you should be careful when you are using iTunes to sync iPad. iTunes is not simply backup or transfer software, and it doesn't allow you to transfer non-purchases. So you only have authority to sync purchased items, including apps, music, movies and so on to your Mac or iTunes library. Check out the following steps.

  1. Authorize your new computer to use your Apple ID. Install iTunes on your new computer and then Authorize it in the Store tab.This is the email address you use to sign into iTunes (and probably anything else Apple-related). If you don't know it offhand, you can just check the computer you're currently syncing with. If you go into the iTunes Store it should appear in the upper-right corner. Once you know it, go to the new computer you want to sync with and locate the Store menu. From there, choose "Authorize This Computer". (In the event you've switched Apple IDs and made purchases with more than one, you'll need to perform this authorization for every account.)
  2. Back Up Your iPhone. Just in case anything goes wrong when you are syncing, back up your iPhone, so that if all else fails, you'll be able to restore it to the way it is right now. To do this, connect your iPhone to your computer with its USB cable and open iTunes, Click "File > Device > Back up".
  3. Transfer Purchases from your iPhone. Now you'll want to transfer all of your iTunes purchases (including free apps, paid apps, songs, books and movies) from your iPhone to your new computer. To do this, right-click (CTRL-click on a Mac) your iPhone within iTunes and choose Transfer Purchases. Or click "File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from my iPhone". Then iTunes will start syncing the purchased items to the library.

How do I unregister my iphone from a Laptop I no longer have ?


Hi Bob,
I'm assuming that by unregister you mean "de-authorize". It's a simple process, please follow these steps:
1) Open iTunes. 2) Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu). 3) Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password.

Can you tell me how to de-authorise a computer that is no longer working from the home sharing on itunes. please


If the computer doesnt work at all, and you are up to the 5 limit for authorizations you can reset them all at once, this will de-authorize ALL of your computers and you will have to re-authorize the ones you want. If you have NOT reached your 5 limit you have to contact Apple to have the de-authorize a machine. (De-authorizing all machines can only be done once per year).

To use the first method (de-authorize all) do the following :

  1. Click iTunes Store in the menu on the left side of iTunes.
  2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
  3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
  4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.

IF your computer still turns on, you can de-authorize just that computer by doing the following:

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password

I gave my girlfriend my old laptop computer & recently bought her a classic i-pod, I managed to download the music from the copmputer originally, but recently tried to add another CD which she wanted...


You need to authorize and deauthorize the computers appropriately for using the different ipods on different machines.
Read this article from apple web site.

Deauthorizing a computer allows you to manage which computers can play music, videos, audiobooks, or other content purchased from the iTunes Store.
Authorization helps protect the copyrights on the content you buy. You can use your digital rights management (DRM)-protected music purchases1 from the iTunes Store on up to five different computers (these can be any mix of Macintosh or Windows-compatible computers). When you play an item you've purchased, your computer is "authorized" to play content purchased using your Apple Account.
Note: Songs you encode in AAC format from a source other than the iTunes Store, such as your own audio CDs, and songs from iTunes Plus downloads do not need to be authorized.
Products Affected iTunes Store
To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account
  1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist).
  2. Click the Play button.
If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Remember to deauthorize your computer before you sell it, give it away, or get your computer serviced.
To deauthorize a computer
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Make sure you deauthorize your computer before you upgrade your RAM, hard disk or other system components, or reinstall Windows. If you do not deauthorize your computer before you upgrade these components, one computer may use multiple authorizations.
To deauthorize all computers associated with your account If you find you have reached 5 authorizations, you can reset your authorization count by clicking Deauthorize All in the Account Information screen.
  1. Click iTunes Store in the menu on the left side of iTunes.
  2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
  3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
  4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.
Note: You may only use this feature once per year. The Deauthorize All button will not appear if you have fewer than 5 authorized computers, or if you have used this option within the last 12 months. If you need assistance on using this feature, please contact the iTunes Store support via email (http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/ww/).

Additional Information
  • iTunes DRM-protected music includes audio with a bit rate of 128 kbps and allows users to transfer songs and videos to up to five computers, burn seven copies of the same playlist to CD, and sync to an unlimited number of iPods.
  • iTunes Plus music refers to songs and music videos available in our highest-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding (twice the current bit rate of 128 kbps), and without digital rights management (DRM). There are no burn limits and iTunes Plus music will play on all iPods, Mac or Windows computers, Apple TVs, and many other digital music players.
  • While you may need to enter your account information again after initializing or formatting your hard disk, initializing or formatting the hard disk itself does not remove the computer from the list of authorized computers. If you plan to initialize or format your hard disk prior to selling or donating your computer, deauthorize the computer first, then initialize or format the hard disk.
  • Under some circumstances you may be required to enter your registration information again, but this should not use up multiple authorizations. If you think that you may have used up multiple authorizations on just one computer, see One computer using multiple iTunes Store authorizations.
  • The iTunes Store is governed by its Terms of Service, which permits Apple to change the authorization policy.
  • You can authorize computers not located in the United States so you can play previously purchased music.
  • An Apple ID based on an expired .Mac (pronounced "dot Mac") or Mobile Me account name and password can still be used to purchase items and to authorize or deauthorize computers to play purchased music.

Hi,

To deauthorize all computers associated with your account
1. Click iTunes Store in the Source pane.
2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.

To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account
1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist).
2. Click the Play button.

If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
