I purchased some songs last year and used them when making a slideshow DVD of my daughter...no problems. Have used a couple others for making shows of some sports without problems.

I dont use this often, and decided to make a DVD slideshow last night. Did not have a song I wanted to use for a couple shows so downloaded two new songs. Before I did this when opening iTunes it alerted me to a new version (7.01) so I let it update.

Now no songs that I have purchased will work when building a slideshow in iPhoto and sharing it to iDVD. I get a note about permissions, go to iTunes and put in my password...which then tells me I have the song on this and it is one of 5 computers I can authorize (only one computer that I use for this) however it will still not allow me to use the song for the reason I purchased it.

Any ideas on what went wrong in the iTunes upgrade?

Ok this is going to sound weird, but what I did was I went to my ~/Library/iTunes/

And then removed all the iTunes Plug-ins and the Scripts and then restarted iTunes, then played a protected song.. it worked. So I then quit iTunes and put all of the plugins and scripts back in and restarted iTunes and everything works now.

Make sure you've run software update as apple recently just updated the other ilife apps as well.

If it still doesn't work, try this hint to use iMovie to convert the protected aac file to aiff first:

Thanks, the other trick did not work...that one did. Why it does not work without going to that trouble is beyond me...what a pain.

Try deauthorizing all of your computers that play your purchased music, then reauthorizing them again one at a time. This solved the problem for me.
