    I bought and downloaded quite a few albums over the last few months via iTunes.
    Recently had to rebuild my PC ( Vista - quit laughing :p )

    Now when I add the albums which were stored on a backup disk back into iTunes and attempt to sync with my iPhone, I receive an error message telling me that over 100 songs could not be copied to the iPhone because "I'm not authorized to play them on this computer" !?

    I've used the iTunes ' Store / Authorize this computer and had confirmation from iTunes that the PC has been authorized !?

    Any help to solve this problem would be appreciated and I promise to buy a :apple: computer real soon :D

    Can you listen to a "bad" song on your computer?

    Hmm. Try deauthorising and reauthorising the computer.

    Problem solved :D

    I'd bought some of the albums via my main account 1 on credit card and setup a new account to use a gift voucher.
    To authorize the blacklisted albums, double click on a song and the request to authorize pops up with the other account information. authorize the album and all songs now transferred.
