I've had a few songs that I bought on iTunes that have cut off before the end of the song. Is there a way I can try to download them again without cost?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update iTunes?

Forever ago.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your iTunes?

First, no matter what I would make sure you have the list recent version of iTunes installed on your computer. If it’s Mac, open the App Store and choose “updates” at the top of the window. If any iTunes or MacOS updates are available please download and install. In windows, open iTunes and choose help, and then choose check for updates.Once you know you have the most recent try the songs with this issue in iTunes again.If that doesn’t work, yes you can delete the songs that you purchased from your iTunes and redownload free of charge. Make sure you delete the file from your trash as well or make sure it’s not in there. Then you can search for the same song in the iTunes Store and where the “buy” or purchase button was there will be a cloud icon. Choose this cloud icon and it will redownload the song.If that doesn’t work just let me know what happens.

What Customers are Saying:

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
