Hi,

I'm trying to import music on iTunes from a Windows XP desktop to a Windows 7 laptop through the Home Sharing feature. It will let me import some songs, but not all of them. The ones that won't import prompt me with a message saying the computer is not authorized even though when I choose "Authorize Computer", it says it's already authorized.

Please help!

Thanks in Advance,
Bob

I'd think you ran into DRM, Digital Rights Management. A lot of programs have this built-in and will stop you from doing what you want.

I'm using iTunes to do this though, I'm not using anything else. DRMs shouldn't be an issue if their in iTunes.
