    Default iTunes purchased music and authorized computers.

    My daughter visited recently and did not bring her iBook. However,
    since she brought her iPod, she used her mother's computer to buy a few
    songs from the iTunes music store, using her own music store account.

    Now she finds that she can't transfer the songs to her iPod without
    replacing the music from her own computer.

    Q1: If she does so, will she be able to merge the purchased songs with
    her iBook when she returns home?

    Q2: Is there a way to physically copy the purchased music to her own
    computer, given that both of the computers are authorized?

    Any assistance deeply appreciated.

    It seems that you can drag a purchased song from the iTunes library but
    you can't copy a song from an iPod to the library of an authorized
    computer.

    Still trying.

    You can if you're willing to use the Terminal.

    True, but once it's copied into the proper Music folder, I don't know
    how to get iTunes to recognize as a member of the library.

    Once you have a song on your hard drive and you'd like to add it to your
    library, drag that song or folder onto the library in iTunes. You can
    either hit the library icon in the source list on the left, or the
    actual library list on the right (if you have the library selected).

    You can also drag items to individual playlists, which will add them
    both to that playlist and to the library (if not already there). I
    typically drag purchased music to the Purchased Music playlist in order
    to add it.
