Few years ago I used my old laptop to buy songs from iTunes.
Now that computer is no longer in use, and I am using a new laptop for over a year now.
I recently downloaded the latest iTunes on my new laptop, and bought a couple of new songs.
My previously purchased songs are all in the Cloud, and when I tried to download them, an error message came up saying I have to authorize my computer before I can download previously purchased songs.
So I went to Accounts, where it gave me the option to De-authorize all computers with this Apple ID. I read the support pages and wondered why this link was showing despite only ever had two computers (or three, if I count the desktop I had before my old laptop) and not five.
I selected the option anyway, thinking for some reason that I would be able to re-authorize my current laptop and dowlnload all my previous songs.
However this was not to be. My account now shows a message "0 computers are authorized to this Apple ID."
