Apple sez…
To authorize a computer to play songs or spoken word content purchased from the iTunes Music Store, select the item (in your library or the Purchased Music playlist), and click the Play button.

If the computer is already authorized to play songs purchased using your account, the song plays.

If the computer has not yet been authorized to play songs purchased using your account, you're asked to enter your ID and password. Enter the ID and password for the account with which the song was purchased.

If you've already authorized five other computers to play your music purchases, you won't be able to play the songs on this computer until you deauthorize one of the already authorized computers.

To deauthorize a computer to play songs or spoken word content purchased from the iTunes Music Store, choose Advanced > Deauthorize Account. Then choose "Deauthorize Computer for Music Store Account" and enter your Apple or AOL ID and password.

If you have trouble deauthorizing the computer, visit the Music Store billing support webpage at

To deauthorize a computer to play spoken word content purchased from the Audible website, choose Advanced > Deauthorize Computer. Then choose "Deauthorize Computer for Audible Account" and click OK.
