    Hello I was wondering if I could get some information about my itunes issue. A friend authorized my computer to play music he bought from itunes. I am thinking about upgrading to a bigger drive but I do not have the password to the authorize. If I use disk image of the itunes folder, will that help me transfer the authorization to a new hard drive. Any help is appreciated.

    I guess if you follow this manual, the library should still be authorised. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1449

    or is this not what you're trying to do.

    I suspect though that when you're replacing your hard drive with another and use carbon copy or time machine or whatever, the authorization will be lost.

    Can't you ask your friend to come over once you installed your new drive?
