What version of VirtualDJ are you using? If it is v5 or earlier, then these old versions of the software do not have native support for the latest codecs used by Apple. You will need to upgrade to the latest version http://www.virtualdj.com/download/updates.html

MixTrack should include VirtualDJ v6 LE which should be new enough to load songs encoded with the newer Apple codecs.
Make sure that you have the latest VirtualDJ LE installed from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/updates.html
The most common cause of 'Error' when loading a song is an incorrect entry for the song in VirtualDJ's database because you have either moved or renamed the file outside of VirtualDJ, so the database entry now points to a file that doesn't exist.
To check, use the VirtualDJ browser to browse to the exact location on disk where one of the songs that won't load is located, then drag it onto a deck.
To correct the invalid database entries, right-click on the top-level folder(s) where your music is located and choose Add to search DB
To remove the old invalid entries, you will need to go to CONFIG -> Browser, choose each drive where music is located and choose CHECK, CLEAN and then FIX - However, these options may not be available in LE outside of the Pro trial. If this is the case, either upgrade to the full Pro at a discount http://www.virtualdj.com/buy/index.html or use Home FREE http://www.virtualdj.com/download/free.html without your MixTrack connected.

If it is a .M4P file then it is an older Apple DRM protected file and cannot be played in VirtualDJ. You will need to upgrade it to iTunes Plus as advised above.

I think I know the cause but i don't know how to fix it.
The problem started after I have reorganized my music library.
Here is what I did.
I have unistalled Itunes and Virtual DJ
Clean up the registry for every trace of Itunes and Virtual DJ.
Erased all Itunes and Virtual DJ Databases and left behind files.
Installed Itunes version 10.5.1.42
Reload my music (3000 songs) on drive D:
Maked sure it work on my PC, on my Ipad and also on my androïd cellphone.
Installed Virtual DJ version 7.0.5b
from Virtual DJ, I openned Itunes, and click on one of my playlist and drag one song on a deck.
I got and error and the song does not play.
If I right click on the song and look at the file infos. I show the wrong file path. It if the file path where it was before my files reorganization (Drive H:)
If i do a search it will find two files, one in drice D: and the other on drive H:
If I drag the one in drive D: to the deck, it will work OK. H: will give the ERROR.
All my playlist are done with Itunes so I really needs to have Virtual DJ work with Itunes.
I have located and erased VirtualDJ Database v6 and as soon I reopen Virtual DJ the Database Is back with all the wrong files Path.
My Question Is:
Where Virtual DJ gets the informations to build the VirtualDJ Database v6

Your case is different than the OP because the track works if you put it on that drive. Virtual DJ thinks it is there, but can't find it when you have removed it. In VDJ, goto "Settings" then "Browser" and it will look like the picture.
You select your drive (circled in red) then hit check. This is in my back up machine, so you can see at the bottom that out of 15 total entries, I only have 3 that were found this time. 12 are "Old Entries" AKA the songs are not there anymore because I have moved or deleted them.
Hit the clean button to remove these old entries. You can also hit the fix button to repair and compact your database file. Make sure you "Check" both of your drives (in your case the D: or H: drives) to get all of your information current. Then hit the Clean & Fix Buttons on each one.
This is the best way to maintain drive changes and is covered in the VDJ User Guide. Deleting your databases could be a last resort. They are not located in the registry. So no need to uninstall and go nuts cleaning, as you see it did not help. There are plenty of tools to help you maintain a good database file, I suggest reading the User Guide bofore doing any harsh moves again though.

One more detail.:
If I create a new playlist in my Itunes, that list does not show up in Virtual DJ. Same for the opsite, If I delete on playlist in my Itunes, it will still show in Virtual DJ. It looks like averything in Itunes is frozen in time like a picture taken 4 weeks ago when viewed by Virtual DJ. Still every thing work ok in my Itunes.

If an exclamation point shows up and itunes skips to the next song, that is a "dead link". Once you have a song that you want and can play, add it back to that itunes playlist. Itunes remembers old songs too, but it is much harder to clean dead links of songs that were renamed, moved or deleted.
VDJ does not have the ability to look deep into itunes info. At this point, the song will show up in VDJ even though it is not in the VDJ database, soley because itunes says it is there.
Last, I have seen 2 things happen when VDJ does not see your new itunes playlists:
1. You closed itunes and open VDJ too fast. Wait 1 min, then open VDJ
2. If VDJ is open, it will not add your new playlists. You need to close VDJ, do your work in itunes, then start VDJ. You do not need to close itunes, but anything you do after VDJ is open, will not be seen in VDJ, until VDJ is restarted.

What I'll like to know is where Virtual DJ gets the informations to build the VirtualDJ Database v6.
If I could find the location, I'll edit or delete this out of date file.
If I could get Virtual DJ to work, I'll buy it.
Thanks for your help.
