The Fuze doesn't support AAC, the format iTunes uses by default for purchases and CD rips. But iTunes can convert AAC to MP3. I believe you just need to right-click the tracks in iTunes and choose "Convert to MP3", or something very similar. Then you can put the converted tracks on the Fuze with simple drag-and-drop.

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. I would suggest removing DRM from iTunes music files, 2 ways as follows:

Apple stopped using DRM on their music sales a while ago.

The thing is, when you convert an iTunes file to mp3, you are converting a file that's already lossy--not fully hi-fi--to one that loses even more. It's like making a grainy photo of a grainy photo.
You might consider making future music purchases elsewhere, like Amazon's mp3 store or emusic. Both give you mp3 files that will go right on the Fuze, no conversion necessary. Amazon has some crazy daily and weekly specials, like the first-day Lady Gaga album for 99 cents.

The Sansa Fuze doesn't support AAC and M4P files, if you want to transfer music from iTunes to Sansa Fuze MP3 player, you need to convert iTunes music to MP3 at first. I have ever use an iTunes Music Converter to convert Apple Music to MP3, the program helps me convert AAC and M4P Apple Music songs to MP3, then transfer the converted songs to my Sansa Fuze.

iTunes music, if you purchased and download them, you will find that they are in M4A format. M4A format is not a common format. To stream iTunes music to sansa fuze, I think you should convert drm audio to mp3. Though iTune purchased songs is not longer in drm format. You can still use apple music converter to convert them to whatever format you like.
