    I've recently upgraded to iTunes 8 and today I'm getting persistent requests to Authorize the computer. It asks for password every few songs or so. What's going on?? any clues on how to fix?

    iTunes 8 may have a per song authorization. If you go the the Store menu and deauthorize the computer, then authorize the computer, everything should be fine.

    I'm having a similar issue, although it doesn't seem to be quite as aggressive as yours.

    Still annoying though.

    Authorization Issue

    Try this:
    Sign out of your account by clicking on "Store" from the very top menu in iTunes, then selecting "Sign Out". Once you are signed out, click "Store" again and select "Deauthorize Computer". Once you have deauthorized, you'll need to completely quit out of the iTunes program. Then, re-open iTunes and authorize by clicking "Store" and selecting "Authorize Computer".
