How to Keep iTunes from Automatically Downloading Purchased Items



+ Add a Comment


I have had exactly this problem. I solved it by making certain that all cookies from Apple are kept. iTunes keeps account information in cookies in the cookie folder. If the cookies are missing or the cookie folder is locked or has incorrect permissions (my problem due to following an old hint from Mac OS X Hints) then iTunes will put up this dialog every time you open it.
