Default How does one get iTunes Plus music to play on BB Pearl?

Please Login to Remove!

My BB Pearl has no trouble playing various mp3s on my storage card however when I transfer AAC .m4a files purchased as "iTunes Plus"(DRM Free) to said card in my Pearl, it won't play them. This is rather peculiar since [url="http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB05 482&sliceId=SAL_Public&dialogID=3098987&stateId=0% 200%203096462"]URL] says,
