    Apple will commonly deauthorize all of your computers if you email them.

    Try this form.

    You don't even need to do that anymore.

    You can go to your account preferences in the Music Store.

    To get to this, when you are signed in click on your account name in the top right of iTunes.

    it will ask for your PW type it in.

    Then you should have to option to de-authorize computers on your account.

    Then you can re-authorise the ones you need as you see fit.

    I think you might only be able to do this either once a year, or only on a computer that is authorised though.

    I don't get that option.


    So, if you've got 5 authorized, and you haven't done it within a year, that'll work for you.
