Okay, I was having problems playing one song in my iTunes library that I purchased yesterday. iTunes kept saying that the computer was unauthorized,(which was a lie). I decided to unauthorized the computer and re-authorized it to see if it would do anything. It did not.

For some reason I could not play the song that I wanted to listen to. The rest were fine.

I decided to delete the song from my computer and try to re-download it, but to my surprise I could not. I went to iTunes Store>Purchased. iTunes said the song had already been downloaded, so there is no way to download it again.

Does anyone know of a way I can re-download previously purchased songs from iTunes?

Try to contact Apple, they're really nice and they'd love to help. I've contacted them before and their email customer service is fabulous.

I reported the problem and was able to re-download my song. All I had to do was click on the "report a problem" link near the song that I purchased.

Not from iTunes or at least not without paying for it again. As far as the iTunes server is concerned your order has been fulfilled. I really shouldn't need to explain why multiple downloads aren't allowed!

Click on "iTunes Store". At the welcome screen for the store, click on "Purchases" (in the list at the bottom-right of the welcome screen, NOT in the column on the left side of iTunes). Click "all songs", then click the little cloud icon on any songs you want to redownload. It will then pop up a button, saying "downloading", and when finished, "downloaded".

Hope this solves the problem you're having. It worked for me. :)
