    I use iTunes to put music on my Bold-heres how I do it:
    1) Usb your bb to the computer-you need to turn on Mass Storage when it prompts you to.(You don't need DM)
    2) Then navigate on your computer to 'My Computer' and find your removable disk/drive, which will be your media card on your bb. Double click on that & it will show 'Blackberry', and if you click on that it should show your bb folders, ie-my music, my videos, my pictures-etc.
    3) Open iTunes. In iTunes highlight in blue the songs you want to copy. Once highlighted, right click and get "copy"
    4) Go back over to your bb folders. - to the one that is "music" left click it & it should turn blue-then right click and "PASTE". your music will then copy into your music folder on your bb. Do this with all the songs you want to put on there without exceeding the amount of space you have on your bb sd card.
    .
    Once your completely done, make sure you click on the icon near the lower right on the screen of your computer to "eject" your bb sd card.
    .
    enjoy!

    Does this work with all songs downloaded from iTunes? Because as I remember the BlackBerry will not play any song with a third-party copyright protection on it?

    there will be some songs that if they are copy right protection, then no it won't copy over unfortunately-thats the only downfall

    Wow. Are they all setup on one computer and currently in use?

    Free/illegal or nothing. I've had an iPod or iPhone since 2006 and I've never bought one thing from iTunes. I occasionally grab free things though, like pilot episodes (e.g., The Office) etc.

    Just don't buy DRM content. I think DRM free content is even available at iTunes for a higher price.

    I would never mess with DRM content since it has limited usefulness.

    The way I do it is to create a new playlist in itunes. Move the songs that you want to the new playlist. Then go to DM, sync music and check only the playlist(s) that have the songs you want, sync and you're done.

    For DRM, burn those tracks to CD, then reimport from CD. Done. No more DRM.
