    Morning all... Quick question for ya'll...
    Ok yesterday I got a new Macbook Pro, and I absolutely love it! So , i transfer all my songs (purchased and not) to my new computer. Great, everything works fine. Im then laying in bed and I decide to test the apple remote. So I go into one of my playlists and press play. The song I clicked to play was a song i purchased from itunes. Instead of it playing it said "you are not authorised to play this song". I thought that was weird, so i went to the next song (a song not purchased) and it played. I then found out all of my purchased songs wouldnt play, and had the same messaged. Anyone know why this is??
    Thanks in advance ya'll!

    you need to authorize your new computer to playback protected music you bought from itunes. from within itunes, Store-->Authorize Computer..., then sign into your account, and you should be all good to go.
