iTunes - some songs demand computer authorisation

Where iTunes is generally OK but some songs when played demand that computer be authorised, proceed thus:

  1. Make sure you are signed in with the same account used for the original purchase
  2. Delete song from Library using Remove Download
  3. Go to Store
  4. Click Purchased from the bottom navigation bar under Features
  5. Choose the Not In Library option
  6. If necessary, search for the songs but there should be a list right there
  7. Once you’ve located the music you are looking for, tap the download button (If you want to download all songs from an album that you’ve purchased, click on the button to switch to the “Album” view.)
All should now be well.

iTunes installer problem

You may encounter a problem installing iTunes where already installed.

Right at the end it comes up with a configuration error and announces no changes made.


Close down iTunes
Start Task Manager
End iTunesHelper
Check no iTunes processes running (you can leave the iPod service).

Attempt the installation again.

If it repeats some stages then do not worry.
