    I recently took some music off my sisters mac and put it on mine. It imported fine but when i went to authorize it with her user and password i ran into to this. I type in the username and password and then hit authorize, it runs the whole contacting itunes store. Then it says this computer has been authorized, with 2 out of 5 machines now authorized to play this music. But when i want to play the song, its like nothing ever happend and im back at square one.
    What should i do?

    PS Yes i know im probably breaking DRM rights and fair use policy

    I don't see your problem clear here. Authorizing your iTunes account's music on another computer is legal; which you can have a maximum of 5 computers.

    If you have 2 iTunes accounts, authorize them both on the computer so you don't run into any issues.

    Is that your problem:confused:
