    I just got a new laptop after I changed my iTunes username, and when I put my music on my new laptop, it keeps asking me to authorize my ability to listen to my purchased music. I am able to authorize it using my new username, but the song doesn't play, and if I try to play the song it just keeps asking me to authorize the song. Is there something wrong with my iTunes? Or is there anyway I can fix this problem?

    Try deauthorizing and then reauthorize the machine by using the Store menu, not the song. Have you maximized the number of authorizations you used? And what do you mean "changed the iTunes username?" Did you just change the email address on your iTunes account?

    I just realized I had a different password for my old account, and now it works.
