I purchased a song and it didn't completely download because I got disconnected from the internet. My connection just dropped.  Anyway I followed the information on the Apple site.  It didn't work.  I can't purchase it because it's highlighted gray or redownload it.  Is there some other way to get the song I paid for?

    If it appears in the Purchased link then you must be in a country where music can be re-downloaded, in which case try deleting the incomplete track from your iTunes library and redownload it via the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store home page on your computer's iTunes : re-downloading.


    If you aren't in a country where you can re-download music or if it re-downloads in the same state then try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via Store > View My Account (Store > View My Apple ID on iTunes 11) and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find that song and use the 'Report a Problem' link and fill in details about the problem (iTunes support should reply within, I think, about 24 hours).


    Some people have had a problem with the 'report a problem' link (it's been taking people to this site on a browser instead of showing a form in iTunes) - if it does that to you then try contacting iTunes support via this page : click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page.
