iTunes won't authorize PC, says it's already authorized.

then it prompts me again to authorize, what do I do?

Seems like you are trying to play something linked to an iTunes account not authorized, i.e. someone else's.

Well, since that's bullet point #2 in the Apple KB article I'd say it's a pretty safe assumption. It happens all the time regardless of the intent and why you got it as a response. If you aren't happy with the answers in this forum feel free to search first.

There was no insinuation, as it is common that couples (who have separate iTunes accounts) will share apps or music among their mutually owned computers, and when you authorize both accounts on all computers, it works just fine.

I've searched all over Google bro, and I didn't find anything, then I realized what the problem was and fixed it
