    I have just recently upgraded the hard drive in my Macbook Pro, so I have to re-activate all of the content in my iTunes library so I can sync my 8gb ipod touch. But I also changed the email address and password that my iTunes account is using and it gives me the old email address to sync some of the apps. When I enter the either of the passwords and it's wrong and when I change the e-mail address to my current one it says its already authorized and prompts me again for the old email address.

    Is there any fixes for this situation? Thanks in advance!

    presuming your old and new emailadres are aliasses of the same iTunes account:

    You can redownload the troubling applications for free from the iTunes store, since you already bought them once.
    Or, check for updates, an update replaces the old App with a new version, and the file contains your new emailaddress.

    iTunes will only let you download something once and there are no updates available
