    Hi Everyone!

    I know this is waaaaaay of topic, but does anyone have any expertise with itunes. I can purchase songs from the store, but they will not download to the library or my ipod. I have emailed their tech support, but an answer could be 72 hours away.....

    Anyone have any advice on how to fix this? Feel free to PM me with an answer if you don't want to respond on the board.

    Thanks in advance,
    BG

    What do you mean registered? I have an itunes account and they are saying the songs have been purchased.

    Well, for example I have a desktop at home, which is where I normally download my iTunes. However, I copied some over to my laptop and tried to play them in iTunes and they wouldn't work because the songs were not "registered" for that computer. I also had trouble downloading on the laptop. However, I eventually got prompted to register my laptop (I forget hwo that came about) so I could play them etc... and I was then able to downlaod successfully. I think iTunes lets you use your song on 3 registered computers... IIRC.

    (Another option is to look and see how your disk space situation is...)

    I thought that you said you were 32 , not 62.

    Even the Captain and Tenille don't listen to the Captain and Tenille anymore.

    No, it is Super Bowl week and my Patriots aren't playing . So, Heartbreak Hotel is my offcial location for the Super Bowl.

    If you take a right on Lonely Street is down at the end. It's very crowded but they still can find some room.

    I once wasted a few hours screwing around with itunes doing basically the same thing as Bills Girl. Then I wisened up and went back to buying my music on CD's and copying them wherever and whenever the heck I want too with no silly restrictions, not to mention much better sound.
