If I remember correctly it is asking you for an old password you think you may have used for it.

Sure it may not be the current one you don't remember (maybe you should look at using a password keeper) you could remember an older password? For a while there monkey was a popular password as was 12345678, monkey123 and password.

The Apple support page states that you can just reset you password after entering your Apple ID.

It also says that if you have your Apple ID on an iOS device (iPad) then you can reset your password from it.

You can also reset your password from your trusted iOS device at any time:

Go to Settings > iCloud.
Tap your name.
Tap Password & Security.
Tap Change Password.
Enter a new password.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
