As the music in iTunes is encrypted with DRM, you cannot directly put it on your RCA MP3 player. The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD and then rip it back to Windows Media Player or a similar program as an MP3. Or you can get some software to help you. I use TuneClone to do this. Though not free, it is very well worth a try.
Below is its step by step tutorial about how to get iTunes music converted to MP3:

Do you use Napster by any chance? Some music services actually remove songs after the subscription expires, or if you haven't synced your Sansa to that service within 30 days. Convert all songs to mp3 format, and you will not have that format.

Also, your DB could have become corrupt. A firmware upgrade usually resolves it.

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip


Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

How did you transfer the music? If they are not viewable on the device, you might try updating the firmware. Otherwise, I would format the device and drag and drop the files manually thru My Computer. * format - right click on the device in My Computer, and select format
