    enter in the info you used when you bought the music -- your email and password for iTunes.

    you probably should have deauthorized the computer before reformatting it...im not exactly sure how the authorization works but it sounds like you've lost one of your authorizations.

    OK, that is really weird. It should only ask for authorisation if it's been bought from iTMS. Try reinstalling iTunes.
