I only have one iTunes account.  The other day I made the mistake of downloading purchased songs and movies logged on another user account (Administrator) on the same computer.  How do I consolidate all my purchases in my preferred user account?

copy the songs that you downloaded as admin and put it somewhere you can access it from you're preferred account (usb stick / cd / shared folder / external hard drive) log into with you preferred user account and drag and drop the files on top of the itunes icon and they will be imported.
if you have a second computer you could use home sharing to move the music from admin itunes to the second computer and from the second computer to the preferred itununes
ps you can only connect 5 computers to you're itunes account so don't forget to de-autorise when you no-longer wand it.

    Yup, your question and Diane's answer helped me also. Tho' I had had problems before getting into the iTunes store I always managed to find a way. Today they had me blocked cold with the "Update to 10" advert no matter what I did. Other questioners are being told, incorrectly as it turns out, that they have to update their OS to accomodate iTunes 10 and upgrade to iTunes 10. I did the download which did not take up much more room on my crowded old hard drive and now I'm back in business.

  • Purchased songs and movies not visible on 2nd computer in Store

    Hi.
    Purchased songs and movies not visible on 2nd computer in Store. To confirm I went to re-purchase and received message telling me it was already purchased. Heeeelllppp! <smile>

    The purchased content will only be on the computer you actually downloaded it to unless you somehow move it to the other computer. You could burn content to a CD or DVD, use an external hard drive, a thumb drive, a network connection or, if you have one, an iPod.

    Hey Ben,
    If you backed up your photos on your computer, just sync back to your computer, and in iTunes, select Photos (with your device selected on the left side of iTunes window). Click to sync photos and select the photo album you want back on your device.
    Good luck

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    It sounds like you are trying to change your login in the Tunes store through iTunes on your computer, which you can only do once in 90 days, which you don't need to do for this.
    What does your iPad usually sync with.

  • I am based in South Africa, and it seems like we cannot purchase songs and movies from iTunes. any suggestions on how to by-pass this seemingly boycott of South African users?

    I am based in South Africa, and it seems like we cannot purchase any music or movies from itunes. Apparently it is not supported by our itunes store, what ever that might mean. Unfortunately the staff in all of the i-shops in South Africa are pretty much unhelpfull, unlike the service i received while in the US. Any suggestions on how to by-pass this seemingly boycot of the South African users?

    To use the iTunes Store in a country you need a credit card issued in that country, billed to an address in that country, and also be physically present in that country when using the store.  Basically all you have access to would be anything offered in South Africa unless you move to a different country.
    It's the media owners who get to tell Apple where and where they cannot sell their media.  I'm sure Apple would be happy to take your money but  if the media companies are not happy then they can say no to sales in SA.
    Even if there were a way to bypass this we certainly couldn't tell you on this forum because it would violate the Terms of use of this web site and get the whole topic removed.

  • HT203167 When I purchased a new iPad it asked me to create a iTunes account I did so by mistake not realizing that you can only  have one iTunes account. All my music is on my original account so I want to stay with that account.

    I have opened a second iTunes account when I purchased my iPad and downloaded movies and books to it that I have purchased on that account. All my music is on my original iTunes account so I was told at the apple store to keep that account only or I will loose all my music purchases. Is there a way to take my movies and books and apps I paid for to be put on my old iTunes account so I can close the new iTunes account I am not using?

    1) authorize iTunes on the new machine for your iTunes store account(s)
    2) connect your device and right-click or control-click it in the iTunes Source list, then choose transfer purchases from the shortcut menu that appears.
    3) sync the device
    iTunes will wipe the iPhone but, since you transferred your purchases in the previous step, your content will be in your library and you can re-populate the iPhone with it.

  • I have Verizon FiOS service for phone, internet and TV but I only have one TV hooked up for it for just basic cable service with no DVR and no need for widgets.  Can I use an Airport Extreme as my router and not use the FiOs router?

    I want to use an Airport Extreme as my router.  I currently have a Verizon FiOS router.  I have Verizon for phone, internet and TV.  However, TV-wise, I just have a basic service for one TV with just a regular box.  No HD, no DVR.  Don't need access to a menu, widgets, on-demand.  Can I eliminate the FiOS Router and just use the Airport Extreme and still have phone and internet?

    I know that it will increase my wireless coverage in my house but will it increase the speeds?
    Not sure what you are asking here.  The AirPort Extreme is only going to be as fast as the Internet connection that it receives.....which is 75/75. It cannot take a 75/75 connection and make it go any faster.
    If you locate the AirPort Extreme in an area where you need more wireless signal coverage, the AirPort Extreme would deliver 75/75 in that area.  But, keep in mind that the AirPort Extreme must connect to the FIOS router using a permanent, wired Ethernet cable connection.
    If you are asking if the AirPort Extreme can wirelessly connect to the FIOS modem router, and extend the FIOS wireless network, the AirPort Extreme would not be compatible with a FIOS product for that purpose.

  • HT201272 i had a problem with my computer and had to put a new hard drive in it. i was able to redownload all purchased songs and movies but not the audio books, any ideas?

    My computer's hard drive went, so i replaced it and installed windows 7,  i down loaded itunes and all purchases where there to download except my audio books.  Any Ideas?

    The difference is that the providers of the audiobooks have not granted a license to Apple to allow redownloading. Unless and until they do, Apple cannot provide that feature.
    Regards.

  • Itunes says it is already associated with another account on ipad2 when i only have one account

    I am trying to get my ipad2 to download purchases previously made from itunes. If i go to settings store and slide the automatic downloads for music to on, it says that this device is associated with another account and cannot be changed for 90 days,  i only have one itunes account and these settings are saved underneath. Any ideas?

    I suspect you only migrated the media folder instead of the complete working library. Either review the transfer process and copy over the entire iTunes folder from your old profile's music folder or see Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

  • "I have a 5th generation time capsule. All of my wifi devices (iPhone, iPad, macbook) worked fine until the other day when everything but my laptop stopped receiving a wifi signal.

    "I have a 5th generation airpot extreme. All of my wifi devices (iPhone, iPad, macbook) worked fine until the other day when everything but my laptop stopped receiving a wifi signal. I shut down my Mac, unplugged the modem, router, let sit for 10 seconds, started it up and 'presto' everything worked.  Then yesterday all but the macbook stopped receiving wifi again.  I tried the same scenario as the other day but nothing.  I reset the airport extreme to factory settings and still nothing.  Is the airport extreme not working?

    If it was not working the Mac would not get a signal. Restart the IOS devices and reconnect to the network
