Using itunes 10.6.1, when I look at the "purchased" folder, I only see apps and books. This is the right account, the computer is authorized and the items are still available on itunes.


The same occurs in the iphone (4s, 5.1.1). ITunes on the phone does not even show the option of redownload.


So whats wrong??

    Which country?


    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519 - enabled with iTunes 10.3 and newer; not available in all countries; apps, books (not audiobooks), music, t.v. shows, and movies (some - not all studios have permitted this). Movies currently available in the USA only. Downloading previously purchased movies and TV shows requires iTunes 10.6 or later.  Discontinued items not available. For items not included in the iCloud list (e.g., ringtones), or locations or computer systems where iCloud is not (yet?) available, you only get one download per fee paid.

    Sweden. The songs appear as "purchased" when looking for them on iTunes.

    How can a country like Sri Lanka have music redownload while Sweden does not is beyond me but it truely ****** me off. Had the unlicky combo of dead iphone and dead NAS so now I need to re-purchase songs for who knows how much? And even if I did want to, iTunes still shows it as "purchased" so I cannot even buy again.


    And people wonder why there is music piracy..

    As per second link in my earlier post, only books and apps for Sweden at this time, sorry.

    Apple notes it is your responsibility to back up your purchases.


    It is reported iTunes Support permitting a second download when asked nicely, but they are in no way obligated to do this. Go to https://expresslane.apple.com ; select 'iTunes' in the first column; 'iTunes Store' in the second column; third column click 'Purchases, Billing & Redemption' and proceed from there.


    It isn't Apple limiting this, it is agreements with media rights holders too.  I would think Apple would do whatever possible to ensure people spent as much money with them as possible.
