Exporting to iTunes (MAC)

How do I export/sync/transfer my winamp library to iTunes?
I can't find the winamp directory and I can't drag songs from the app to iTunes.

In the Media Library, click "Library" in the lower left corner.
Try "Export Media Database..."

where is your winamp? on windows OS or on a mac OS?

assuming windows, do what ryerman says, and then import that file into itunes, meaning do it while itunes is open, from within itunes.

if it were me however, i'd just let each program scan the files. why do u want to do this?

I can't locate the files for Winamp and they don't show up under iTunes.

What are "the files for Winamp"?
If you mean the actual media files (MP3 or FLAC or M4A etc.) that are in your Winamp Library: it's difficult to help you. Only you know where you store your music.
If you mean Winamp's program files that define the Library: they can't be used directly by iTunes and are unhelpful.

What does "they don't show up under iTunes" mean?
What have you done to try and make that happen?

But I haven't suggested that you look for existing files or folders.
My suggestion in post #2 explains how you can create an XML file that may be imported into iTunes.
I don't use iTunes and therefore can't say that the XML file will be accepted by your version of iTunes.
Have you tried?
Have you tried MrSinatra's suggestion to scan the media files with iTunes?

i suspect he might be using "winamp for mac" but given his brief replies this is like pulling teeth.

You're probably right.
Maybe my suggestion can't be used in "Winamp for Mac".
