My first computer was stolen. I want to cancel that computer and move all music to this computer. How do I do that?

    Where did you get the music? If it was downloaded from Apple you can simply download it again free of charge, provided the music still exists in the iTunes Store.

     

    Similarly, music obtained from other sources still exists on those other sources, meaning if you copied it from CD you will have to copy it again.

     

    To "cancel" that computer from playing your authorized purchases, "deauthorize all" as follows:

     

    1. Open iTunes on a computer
    2. From the Store menu, select "View my Account..."
    3. Sign in with your Apple ID and password.
    4. Under "Computer Authorizations" select "Deauthorize All".
    5. Authorize each computer you still have, as you may require.

     

     

    You may only do this once per year.

     

     

    After you "deauthorize all" your authorized computers, authorize each one as required.
