iTunes is an application that only syncs with apple devices.
No changes have been made to add DRM to iTunes media, in fact it was removed years ago.
What happens when trying to play media on the device? Is the media in mp3 format? By default media purchased from the iTunes Store is in AAC format.

I replaced my computer a couple of months ago. Now when I try to play something, I get a message on most of the songs that says itunes can't find it. But I can bring it up on my media player. Incidentally, I previously have always synced with my Ipod...worked fine. Tried to sync to Ipod today...says it can't find. I try to play a song from my library...says it can't find. I can find, and play all my itune songs from my "Media Center" app. I realize that some of these tunes were uploaded several years ago, But if I can no longer play my music then I have thrown away a lot of money.

I just went to Media Player and tried to play a song. It was transferred to Itunes, and played fine. But when I clicked on that same song in Itunes, I got a message that it couldn't be played because it couldn't be found. I checked the info on the song and it said "purchased AAC". I think it's pretty weird that I can't even play Itunes songs on Itunes.

Has (Windows?) Media Player moved the file? That would explain why iTunes can no longer play it. See Getting iTunes & Windows Media Player to play nicely.
