    Welcome to CB. You can't play iTunes files on your Pearl. iTunes uses DRM to protect their files from being played on other devices.

    Not every music file of his has to be protected. Open itunes, plug your blackberry up and set it to be used as a mass storage device. Click what you want and drag it into the folder you want your music.

    It does. Look for the music that isn't a "protected AAC" file.

    Blackberrys can't handle DRM protected music but you should be able to find some programs that will convert AAC formats to MP3 or other playable formats easily. I use a freeware program called iTunes Sync which syncs selected playlists in iTunes with my Pearl. Works well.

    itunes is a good "free" program to convert aac to mp3

    edit
    pref
    advanced
    importing: select mp3 option

    for protected, burn to audio cd then rip back as mp3.

    If you don't want to burn a CD and rip it back as MP3's, just use this freeware here. It will easily convert AAC to MP3 with no hassle and no money out of pocket.
