    If you can download tracks in MP3 format from the itunes store then it will play on the Zen. I don't use the itunes store so unfortunately I'm not sure whether it forces you to download it in AAC (which won't play on the Zen).

    iTunes tracks are DRM enabled AAC tracks, which are not compatiable with the Zen.

    You will need to strip the DRM and convert to MP3 (which will affect sound quality). The easiest way to do this is to burn the tracks as an audio CD, and then re-rip them into MP3.

    iTunes will soon be offering higher bit rate AAC files without DRM, but at a higher price I believe.
