OK, I just downloaded a song from iTunes on my Macbook. Then I plugged in my iPhone and when it tried to sync the song I just downloaded it won't let me. I get this message:

"xxx song" was not copied to the iPhone "xxx iPhone" because you are not authorized to play it on this computer.

What is the deal? I first was just going to download it from iTunes on my iPhone, but I can't figure out how to login to my account on my iPhone. So I thought I would quick just download it from the computer and Sync it, but this isn't working either.

OK, I just posted this, but I got it working. I tried to play the song on my computer and it asked me for my password to "authorize" this computer. After I did that it allowed me to transfer the song to my iPhone.
