    As far as I know, I had music from two authorized accounts on my ipod but when i tried to add music from what I thought was a third account, a message popped up saying that I had 5 and couldn't add anymore. I deleted files from an account i hadn't realized was there but now i'm wondering what other accounts are on my ipod. It would be really helpful to be able to view them and possibly delete them. Can anybody help me?

    You don't. You authorize iTunes Libraries (Up to 5 per account). iPods just play stuff copied over from an authorized computer no questions asked.

    it's not that you have too many authorized on the iPod it's that the account you're trying to use the music from has authorized too many computers.

    No i know what she means. You cant have music from 5 different accounts on an ipod, but you can on a computer. Like, if I called 7 accounts A B C D E F and G, then only A B C D and E are allowed on one ipod at a time. Not that A is authorized to 6 computers. Its annoying, does anyone know how to fix it, or at least find out easily (without doing thousands of searches) what accounts are in use on your computer?

    Thanks
