    Hey guys. My iPhone 3G was getting sluggish and began crashing a lot, so I restored it. As I attempted to put all of the songs and apps back, they would not authorize. All of my apps and songs will not authorize. When I try to authorize them, it says that the computer is already authorized. I'm really confused.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm thinking I should move this to the iTunes section.

    If someone could help me out with that that'd be great.

    Deauthorize the computer and then reauthorize. This should fix it. It's not letting you authorize the computer because it is already authorized. You first have to deauthorize.

    Tried this several times, but no luck.

    I'm hoping the issue was on Apple's part because apparently they were doing service on the DRM servers last night.

    Could be, how did you find out they were doing work on the servers last night?

    Problem was fixed and iTunes gave me 5 songs credits for the inconvenience.
