    Droid won't recognize (and can't play) ITMS protected files (those with a .m4p extension). .mp3 and .m4a are fine.

    Welcome to the forum, ecronin14! Did you check to see if they're protected files or not? If they're older purchases, they probably are and you have to pay iTunes to 'unprotect' them and make them usable on the Droid. That would be my first guess. This video should help you out.

    Wow, thank you on the video. I knew how to put music on already but did not know how to get protection off some of my songs. Helpful!
