Moving music to my media card in my BB pearl

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME! I just bought the new 8130 pearl... i can't get music on it! (I've bought 2 songs through iTunes) I tried using BB Media Sync and it won't work... I've tried draging and droping and it's not working...

When I look at my BB card through windows it shows the songs. When I unplug my BB from the computer and try to find them on my phone it shows no songs!

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Moving music to my media card in my BB pearl

First, there could be one main problem: BlackBerrys will not play purchased or bought iTunes with the iTune DRM Digitial Rights on the file.

 

There is a common method to remove DRM WMA, M4P with 2 steps:
1.  Burn the DRM WMA, M4P to a CD.
2. Rip the DRM WMA, M4P from CD to your computer as MP3 format , then the DRM should be removed from the WMA files.

Mr. Sanders is correct.  Additionally, no other mp3 players will play music from iTunes until the DRM is removed.  You can thank Apple for that.
