I recently had to exchange my MBP under warranty b/c of a hardware issue and I forgot to deauthorize iTunes on it before I did the return. Is there any way to deauthorize it remotely or within iTunes? Is that something the Apple tech would do when they format it?:confused:

I tried resetting my authorizations, but the only machine it worked for was my current MBP, not the exchanged one or my old Dell box.:confused:

You will only see the "Deauthorize All Computers" selection in the menu if you have used up all 5 authorizations. Otherwise, the selection will be to only deauthorize that specific computer.

Any I've read that you can only use the deauthorize all computers once a year. Not sure if that's a 12 month period, or a single calender year.

You can always email iTunes Store support and they'll reset it for you...
I might just do that. I don't really have a need to deauthorize the two 'puters I don't have anymore, but I do like to keep things neat and tidy and having my only machine now (current MBP) as the only authorization appeals to me.
