Itunes people with new non Apple Devices

Well, after I purchased a Blackberry 8830 last week. I wanted to use the phone to play my music. The problem, I purchased most of my music from Itunes that has DRM on it, which means the files were useless on anything other than my home PC or Ipod. Thankfully, someone created a program that strips the DRM away and leaves you with univeral AAC files for your purchased music. It will take about 1 minute per song to convert, which is not bad, you could let this bad boy run for an hour or 2 and convert your entire library. Here it is, it is really easy to use and will update your playlists in Itunes so no need to reimport anything.

Do you load the files onto the 8830 via the BB Application Manager manager program? I have an 8830 and once I get my 4GB card I'm going to load all my songs onto it. Do you know how to do videos as well?

Only when I want to make playlists for it or do something special. Right now, I have a 2G MicroSD card in it, so I just attach it to the PC and drag the files over like a thumb drive or hard disk.

As for the videos, I haven't tried those yet; I don't have any videos, but I will try to search for you and see if there is anything to strip that DRM as well.
