    Every time I restore my phone I have four or five popups asking for passwords for iTunes accounts that aren't mine. I recognize one of the accounts as a friend who shared some music with me years ago. Is there any way I can identify the content in my library that is attached to these other accounts so I can get rid of it?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks! The first method worked perfectly!

    Now that I've identified the culprits, is there any way to remove whatever is attaching them to those other accounts? Or do I need to delete them and repurchase?

    You'd probably want to delete and repurchase.

    If they are songs, try to convert them into wave files and convert back into AAC. This could remove those metadata from files and erase purchase information from it. I haven't tried this before though.
