ok I have an ipod mini configured for windows and i recently got a macbook and accedentily broke my windows machine so i only have the music on the ipod no where else...so I'm transfering my tunes from my ipod to my macbook....but here's the thing when I come to a song i bought with itunes my computer doesn't have permission to play it...fine just put in my password it'll be ok right?...wrong I purchased them a long time ago on an AOL screen name that I deleted a while ago... so it says wrong password/screen name....so my question is, is there anyway around this? or am I just plain screwed

No login... you are plain screwed.

How can you delete a login id? AOL or not it is still a valid Apple ID.

thats what I thought...but evidently if you delete the AOL screen name it no longer recognizes you

Have you tried re-registering the same screen name and password with AOL? Maybe it'll work then.
