I updated the App Store for Snow Leopard. When I then attempt the OS download and enter my Apple ID I get an alert on my iPhone alerting me to the use of my ID for another device and giving me a 6 digit code to enter after entering my ID. Tried that but now I get "Your Apple ID or password was entered incorrectly".


Ideas?
