Same as title: how can I remove something from my download list FOREVA! Why would I want to do this? Because it's a piece of poo free sampler from Best Buy that is effing huge, and terrible and I don't want it, ever (it's been stuck to my list since 08, and it must die). Every time I buy something I have to remember to go and remove that from my list, otherwise iTunes gets caught up downloading that thing, which is many times larger than any video/cd/app that I have ever downloaded on iTunes before. It wouldn't be as much an issue if I had a good ISP but I don't, so any non-apple employee people giving some smarmy "get better internets" advice need not apply.

13" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), iTunes 9.0.2

    Once an item enters the download queue, the user cannot remove it. Either let it complete the download (easiest) or contact the iTunes Store customer support department through the Contact page and ask them if they'll remove the item(s) from your queue for you.

    Can anyone tell me why we can't do this ourselves???? It is very annoying not to be able to permanently delete something I DO NOT WANT!!!! Some of these downloads are HUGE and they take too long!

    Because Apple has not configured iTunes to do that.
    If they did, more than likely they would get 1000 times more requests to put items back into the downlaod queue that people "accidentally" deleted than they do for requests to remove items.
