Exactly what MacGizmo said. I did an upgrade at first with Panther, and it worked with no problems... Then I decided to do a fresh install, so I backed up all my files, formatted, reinstalled, and moved my files back to their proper locations. When I started iTunes for the first time, it recognized the purchased music and didn't even ask me if I wanted to authorize, I was just able to listen to them right away. I believe it tracks the "authorized" systems via MAC address from your network card.<br><br>Are you trying to copy the music onto another computer from your iPod? Perhaps you could explain a little more in-depth exactly what you are doing on what machine(s)...<br><br>----<br>A computer without a Microsoft operating system is like a dog without bricks tied to its head.
