Under manage cloud devices on iTunes, I want to add another device. How do I add another device to authorize for purchased downloads? Am I allowed only a certain number of devices authorized to my apple ID?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    If the device is connected to your computer and the computer is authorized, then so is the device. You may have only 5 computers authorized at any one time after which you must deauthorize one to authorized a new one.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.

     

    Where exactly are you seeing "Manage cloud devices"

     

    Only computers use authorisations, mobile devices are classified as associated devices. Authorised computers also count as associated devices, you can have up to 10 associated devices.

    Devices are added automatically when they use certain features in your iTunes account, in order to be able to play protected content on your mobile device you need to log into your iTunes account on that device.
