Hi,

 

If you do not have access to the old machine you want to deauthorize you cannot just deauthorize the single machine, Instead you will need to deauthorize all of your machines then go back and reauthorize those that you still have.

 

To do this can you click the iTunes Store link in the menu on the left side of the iTunes software window and then click the Account button then enter your account name and password.

 

Next can you click the Account button again and enter your password XXXXX click View Account, When the Account Information window opens can you then click Deauthorize All.

 

After that is done you will then need to go to each of your iTunes machines and then click the store button from the top toolbar and click Authorize

 

Try that and let us know if you need more info or clarification

 

Thanks

Eric

Expert:  Claws224 replied 3 years ago.

Ok,

 

So were you able to open iTunes then click store on the left hand menu then choose accounts and then go to view account and click the deauthorize all option?

 

If not can you tell me how far you got?

 

Thanks

I didn't have the option to choose "accounts" my option is "Authorized this computer or Deauthorized this computer" so I Deauthorized this new computer by entering the password XXXXX it said the computer was successfully deauthorized, but then when i try to sync its telling me that 5 account is already authorized....

Expert:  Claws224 replied 3 years ago.
Ok,

In iTunes when you go to store then select your account do you see a screen like this http://media.obsessable.com/media/2008/10/19/zz0887d636-1.jpg

Let me know

Thanks

No
Expert:  Claws224 replied 3 years ago.
Ok,

In that case I am going to have to opt out and see I another expert has any ideas as that is the only way I know to deauthorize all your machines

Thanks

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is Kevin and I will be assisting you today.

To be able to sync, Claws is correct - click iTunes Store from the left side of the screen - the iTunes store should open like this - I think you may be clicking Store at the top of the screen instead of iTunes Store:

Next, then click your name at the top right. This will open up a login prompt, then the account settings. Click Deauthorize All.

Exit the settings, then click Store>>Authorize Computer and you should now be able to sync.

If this works for you, please click Accept on the Answer Claws provided - if not, let me know and I can help resolve this for you.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
