    Hello guys...

    My iTunes says that I have 4 of 5 machines authorize... If I only have one computer.. how can I fix this?

    Thanks

    See this:

    Specifically the "deauthorize all" option. You can only do it once a year. Do it and then re-authorize your (one) computer.

    Go to My Account in iTunes store and reset it.

    This can happen if you ever wipe a computer before deauthorizing. This had gotten me. I'm up to 3 out of 5 despite only having one computer with iTunes installed. I've had two previous XP installs that I've had to blow away for one reason or another. But now I am all OSX:D

    If I ever do the deauthorize all, do I lose all of my playcounts?

    No, playcounts are specific to a certain library or playlist. Deauthorizing all your computers will not reset anything in iTunes, except for the fact that you'll need to reauthorize iTunes itself.

    I hear you.

    Hopefully everyone will read this: DE-AUTHORIZE YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE WIPING IT! :eek:

    If you deauthorize all I don't think it affects your library at all.
