    Hey guys, I recently got the new 2011 iMac. This is an upgrade from my core duo iMac. I was planning on connecting my external hd to my iMac, authorizing my new iMac and transferring over my itunes library.

    This is where the problem lies. I have like 4 seasons of "The Office" and four episodes made it over. Now all of these were purchased on itunes. I can explore the external hd just fine and actually grab the episodes I want to move in my new iMac, but alas the green plus sign appears, I drop and nothing happens. I like to think I'm pretty savvy, but I've hit a brick wall. Almost all of my purchases are on my new Mac, why do some refuse????

    My wife and I did change our acount e-mail like 3 months ago if that matters.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Try holding down the option key while clicking on whatever you're dragging over, and see if that helps.

    You need to authorize your new iMac to play your DRM'd content in iTunes.
