    This problem has been addressed before but I didn't understand the solution........I'm a little slow even for a "silverhead"
    I bought a new computer, transferred my iTune music folder to the new harddrive. I then installed iTunes, opened it up, voila, my music was all there!
    I now had to create anew account in order to purchase a new game for my iPod Touch. No problem, everything went OK and the game is on my iPod. I'm not sure when I synched my iPod but I did.
    Now when I open my iPod the games I originally from my old account are gone (both free and bought). I look in iTunes and they are there but I can't get them back onto my Touch....synching doesn't work and trying to drag them onto my Touch has no effect. I must be missing something. Please, can someone gently help me. Thanks, Keith

    i dont know for a fact but it may be because u made a new itunes account......i think that apps are "registard" to that account. maybee.....try logging into your other itunes account....thats my thought

    Are all the old account applications currently in your iTunes library on your new computer?

    You need to authorize you computer with whatever account you used to download the original apps.

    You can authorize more than one account on a computer.

    No, but you can have more than one account. It will sync both but to update you will have to sign into the account the app was purchased from.
