    Burn them to CD. Re-import into iTunes on MacBook. That is the only way I am aware of. :(

    1)authorize the macbook w/ old account
    2)put all of your media from the old iTunes account onto your iPhone 3G or plug in your iPhone if you still have it
    3)transfer purchases from iPhone

    everything should be on the macbook now

    Then no. I purchased songs on my work computer (same account) and I left there last October. I can't get those songs from iTunes no matter what I've tried.
