    Yep, probably the ones that did not transfer have DRM.

    Once synch is complete, did you get the option of displaying which songs didn't transfer? These are the ones containing Apple's dreaded digital rights management.

    Nope, Apple has restricted them to only play on iTunes or an Apple product.

    There are products out there that will remove the DRM, try Google.

    you could also "upgrade" those songs to be drm free by using itunes. depending on the amt though, it may be worth trying to remove the drm all together instead.

    or stop downloading songs from I-tunes...i stopped a while back when they had me load the new itunes software to where now i HAVE to sync my itouch to my computer everytime...problem is, now that my old laptop took a dump, when i sync to my new computer, it will totally wipe out all info from my itouch that i had from my old computer.

    all their security features suck royally...now i just download movies and songs from the internet...no problem transferring songs to both your I-pod and blackberry.

    I have no idea what DRM is but I'm guessing that's when you buy the songs right? lol I just download them
    digital rights management, its what allows itunes to specify what devices your songs will play on. and i agree it sucks!!

    DRM - Digital Rights Management, and as papped so quaintly put it, DRM sucks big time.
