Are your tracks perhaps in MP4/AAC format ( = default iTunes format ) ?
Mixxx can currently read: Ogg Vorbis, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AIFF.

Edit: AJ can type faster :D
The Mixxx Manual, Wiki and FAQ are the best place to start for documentation and support.
Please report any bugs you find to our Bug Tracker.

If your files are in M4A/AAC format, you need to download the M4A plugin for Mixxx from somewhere or build it.

I'm not Garth, if you're talking to me. :) But here are instructions for building Mixxx: http://mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php#build_mixxx
Just make sure you build with the m4a=1 flag and the plugin will be built as well.
