I have stumbled upon an older protected file from an old account. i have the correct password to play it, however it says i have the maximum 5 computers allowed to play protected songs. if i try to login with itunes it just tells me i cant have more than 5 computers at one time be allowed to play files from that account. i was wondering if there were a way to edit account setting on apple.com? i looked through support and didnt see anything.

thanks

You USED to be able to control authorizations through the apple.com website, but now it all has to be done through iTunes apparently.

This support page from apple will help you.. If you've authorized 5 or more computers there will even be a "Deauthorize all" button, which is easiest usually... then just reauthorize the machines that you use regularly.

http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/store/authorization/

the links on that page will launch iTunes and display the desired sections of the iTunes store.

Good Luck
