    Okay, two of my old powerbooks (or okay, the same powerbook twice), when being repaired by apple, had their hard drives erased before I could deauthorize them. As it is, I am currently at my maximum 5 authorized computers, even though there are only actually 3 authorized computers, and the other two are... well, they're wherever they are. I was told that there was someone at apple I could contact about getting those two accounts back. Does anyone know how to do that?

    It's in your iTunes account settings somewhere. Sorry I can't be more specific.

    I followed the directions and I'm not getting the option to deauthorize all computers only the current one. I did that hoping it would deauthorize all but it didn't. I have 4 computers authorized and only 1 is operational.

    I believe that it only works once you have five computers authorised.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I work midnights and I guess I was so tired this morning when I got home that I neglected to read that. I'm new to a mac and found this forumn. I looked around and liked what I saw so I figured I'd post my issue. Again thanks.
