In Iphoto, i used to make a slideshow add music,(purchased) from Itunes and burn it. Now I get a message saying I can only play it on authorized machines. Won't play on my DVD player only my 3 Apples. Any ideas?

The problem is that the music included in your DVD was protected content. The disc is unplayable unless the device playing it can prove that it is an authorized device (your macs were). I know that this sounds ridiculous, and it is.

Unfortunately this is working exactly as it was intended. However, there is a work around called FairGame.
