Why does Apple need me to reauthorize my PC

I recently switch from Windows 7 to 10. Apple is asking me to authorize my PC so as to have access to hundreds of CDs in My Music. Can you help me out with that?

Thanks very much.

Do you know what the procedure is, Terrance? If you do can you lay it out for me? In the meantime I'll be looking for the process myself. Thankis!


Hi @royhendy,

Have you seen this? If so apologies. Scroll down to the section headed Windows Users.


Hey Jayeff,

I went to the link you provided me but once there I am told that my computer is authorized as is my iPhone. The problem is that it still does not let me access ALL the music I have on iTunes, not even one third of the stuff I have on there. I did send them an email and when I get an answer, I will share it. Maybe a couple of days. Thanks bud........!!

Use iTunes and de-authorize the machines you no longer use, the reauthorize the one you do use.

It is to limit the number of computers you can hook your iPhone/iPod to prevent file sharing. Last time I looked it was 5. (I think but it has been a while)
