Chapter 25. Solving iTunes Music Store P... > Solving the “Not Authorized to Play”...

Solving the “Not Authorized to Play” Problem

As you learned in the previous chapter, you can play music you have purchased on up to five computers at the same time. If you try to play purchased music and see the “This Computer Is Not Authorized to Play This Music” message, you need to authorize the computer before you can play the purchased music. If you already have five computers authorized, you will need to deauthorize one before you can authorize another. (If you need help doing these tasks, see Chapter 25, “Working with Purchased Music.”)

The challenge can sometimes be remembering how many and which computers you have authorized. The “how many” part is easy. Just access the Apple Account Information screen for your account. The Computer Authorizations section will tell you how many computers are currently authorized to play music for the account (to learn how to access this screen, see “Viewing the Music You Have Purchased” on page 359).
