I preordered some music last night via iTunes on my computer at home. I have an iPad at work that is bound to the same iTunes account. I go to the "Purchased" section in iTunes on the iPad and my preorder isn't there. The preorder has been released and i received my confirmation from Apple this morning that it in fact has.

How can I download my preorder?

Has the preorder been released? Can you tell exactly what you preordered? – duci9y Oct 16 '12 at 14:28

Although I have never preordered tracks before here’s my take. Search for the track in the store on your iPad and download it from there. – duci9y Oct 16 '12 at 14:54
im afraid that its going to charge me again. – Daniel A. White Oct 16 '12 at 15:12
What does the button say? Does it say “Buy” or “Download”? – duci9y Oct 16 '12 at 15:28
