    Installed iLife 5 and attempted to work on iDVD projects begun using iDVD 4. Works fine except cannot access iTunes-purchased music: "This computer is not authorized to play..." whatever. I follow the directions and prompts including re-authorizing the computer and am notified that the computer is now authorized. Yet when I select iTunes music form within iDVD 5, I get the original "this computer is not authorized..." run-around. Okay, now you can slap me: what am I not doing? Jack

    Music downloaded from iTMS won't work in your iDVD projects because of the FairPlay DRM that Apple uses.

    Your best bet is to burn the songs you want to a music CD redbook, and then re-import the songs from the burned CD as AIFF files, that you can then use in your iDVD project.

    I believe you might be able to use iTMS songs within iMovie, though, not sure.
