First question. From what I am reading If I buy a song on one computer I have to manualy move the song to my ohter computer? If I authorize my other computer will all the purchased song show up, or do you still have to move them then authorize?

Second, when i create a playlist in itunes on one computer I thought when i signed into itunes on the other computer my playlist would be there? Do you have to create the playlist seperalty on the two computers?

THANKS

    Correct.

    You need to move them. Except for applications, one purchase only entitles you to one download of that item.

    Second, when i create a playlist in itunes on one computer I thought when i signed into itunes on the other computer my playlist would be there?


    Playlists are stored on the computer and don't have any connection to the iTunes Store.

    Do you have to create the playlist seperalty on the two computers?


    Yes.

    You have to copy the tracks yourself from the computer on which they were download to any other system. What order you do the authorization in; that is, copy first and then authorize, or authorize and then copy, usually won't matter.

    Second, when i create a playlist in itunes on one computer I thought when i signed into itunes on the other computer my playlist would be there?

    No. Playlists are not copied between computers unless there's some third-party software that would synchronize playlists between systems. Only if you have iTunes Sharing set up between the two computers will a playlist on the first computer appear on the second.

    Do you have to create the playlist seperalty on the two computers?

    Normally yes. However, you may be able to export the playlist on the first computer and import it in the second and have it work.

    Just the list. You also have to copy the tracks.
