    I am kind of a noob when it comes to iTunes, I need help with something

    a friend of mine bought songs off the itunes store and sent those songs to me,
    those songs will not sync to my ipad because my computer is not authorized

    All I want to do is to some how find all the songs that are not authorized in my itunes library.

    It used to be easy because every time I sync my iPad it says "Songs x,x, and x won't sync because they are not authorized" or something like that

    now it won't say that any more, I tried to go to the preferences and reset the warnings in iTunes. Won't work either

    can you please help me find the unauthorized songs?

    try this script.

    This script will examine each track in a selection of tracks or a selected playlist to determine if it was purchased from the iTunes Store and then copies it to a discrete playlist named for the person who purchased it, eg: "Steve Ballmer's Purchased Music". Recognizes song, video, and audiobook purchases. Purchaser information is gleaned by examining the track's file, which, depending on file location and access speed, can take as long a second per track.
