I did a right click on the title of the song, pasted it to my desktop, and dragged it to the sansadisk player. I was prompted with the question of do you want to be able to play it on the sansa, answered yes, it was changed and pasted. Works beautifully!!

Apple uses DRM copy protection on all items purchased through the iTunes Store in order to prevent you from playing the songs anywhere but on Apple device. Sansa Fuze is not an iTunes supported device. If your Sansa Fuze is the primary device you plan to use for playing back songs on the go, I would suggest removing DRM from iTunes music files, 2 ways as follows:

I know its been a few months since this thread was last updated. Oh well. . .
But anyway, as far as the iTunes DRM issue goes, I don't believe this is still applicable. As a matter of fact I don't think Apple has been doing this since 2009. What you can do NOW is upgrade your Apple music "subscription" (for lack of a better word) to what they refer to as "iTunes Plus". Then your song files SHOULD be playable and accessible by other devices and players, etc.
Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

Saving a copy of a song in a new file format
When converting from a compressed to uncompressed file format (for example, from MP3 to AIFF) you shouldn't notice any reduction in sound quality. However, when converting between compressed formats (for example MP3 and AAC), you may notice a reduction in the sound quality. For the best results, if you want your music encoded in a different file format, you should import the music again from the original source using the new encoding format.To convert a song's file format:
If you haven't imported some songs into iTunes yet, you can import and convert them at the same time. This will create a converted copy of the file in your iTunes Library based on your iTunes preferences. To convert all the songs in a folder or on a disk, hold down the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows) and choose Advanced > Convert Import preference setting. The Import preference setting will match what you chose in step 3. iTunes will prompt you for the location of the folder or disk you want to import and convert. All the songs in the folder or on the disk will be converted. Note: Some purchased songs are encoded using a protected AAC format that prevents them from being converted. iTunes Plus purchases are not protected and can be converted.
The song in its original format and the newly converted song appear in your library.

Any tracks or playlists you downloaded from the Apple Music subscription library are DRM-encumbered. You'd better crack DRM to make Apple Music DRM free.
