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,
