    This is a pretty stupid question, but i don't feel like googling hahaha. Whenever i start iTunes, cancelled downloads resume downloading. How do I get this to stop??? I just want those cancelled downloads not to start again.. :)

    not sure there is a way for that ? looking in prefs does not say anything , but why do you not want to download you paid for songs?

    only thing that comes close is the buy using the shopping cart or/ to turn off the music store use

    prefs-store- untick use itunes music store

    They are just the free songs. I dont want them hahaha. I guess i'll just download them already and just delete them. But i mean what if i hit a song by accident that I didnt want to buy? This is why I just want it to stop automatically downloading when I reopen iTunes.

    That's really odd that there is no way to cancel downloads without wanting them to restart...stupid iTunes. I don't normally buy songs, just free ones, or if i have a voucher thing. Growl, i guess i'll just change the settings...

    Even if you could cancel the download, you would still be paying for the song. iTunes charges your account before you even begin downloading.
