    I tried searching for this but i really don't know what keywords to use to get the right stuff.

    basically i have an two license address. what i want to do is update all my files to my new address. (my own domain name).

    I found a program the says it will remove the DRMs from files but 1 it doesn't work and two. I'm not trying to do anything illegal just change the address its registered to

    Yeah itunes store media. its a pain to have one email account for every day stuff and another one that i have to type in for downloading and authorizing media....

    I forgot to mention that i'am also army so I will probably be shipped out with some time this year. i wont be using my stuff as much and when i get back i would like not to have to try and hunt down all my old passwords and email address just so i can watch my tv show or movies or listen to my music

    If you change your e-mail for your iTunes Store account it'll grandfather in the old media automatically even if it still shows the old e-mail.

    I think I know what the op is talking about. I had an e-mail address that I used back in the day and changed it. I still have the same iTunes account, I just changed the user ID. The other day I wanted to make a ringtone from an iTunes purchase that I bought with the old e-mail as the ID. I got an error that said it was registered to another account or something of that nature. The song was still authorized under my account but purchased with a different ID. If thats not too confusing.

    PS to the OP, Thank You for your service!
