Deauthorize Itunes Dead Computer
If you've used up all your iTunes authorizations and buy a new computer, you may need to learn how to deauthorize iTunes on a dead computer. Authorizing a computer will allow you to play around with the content that you have bought off of the iTunes store, which is great for when you upgrade your system. However, if you cannot even access to operating system of your old computer, you're going to need to figure out how to deauthorize your dead computer. The following steps are the easiest way to completely deauthorize a dead computer so you can have more control over your media files.
To deauthorize iTunes on a dead computer, you need:
- A working computer
- The latest version of iTunes
- An Internet connection
- Be Careful! If you're trying to deauthorize your dead computer, realize that you cannot do it too often. You can only deauthorize iTunes once a year using this. The main reason we're using this method is because we're assuming that you cannot access your dead computer's operating system.
- Start Up iTunes And Go To The Store. From here, sign into your account by clicking on the "Account" tab. After you are signed in, click on the "View Account" tab. In this "Account Information" window, click "Deauthorize All." This will deauthorize iTunes on all of computers.
That's pretty much it! Now you can deauthorize iTunes on a dead computer and finally regain control of your digital media library! Once again, remember that you can only use this method to deauthorize all computers once a year, so be sure to plan around that if you have a habit of breaking a lot of computers.
