Sharing Music over a network?

Recommended Posts



I've always been able to play music from my main home computer on my laptop when I'm on my home network. I'm not trying to do this over the internet or anything tricky.


However, with iTunes 5.0 I haven't been able to pull down a list of shared music. I've reset my Airport Express, reset all of the preferences in iTunes, done all of the standard maintenance stuff (e.g. verify permissions...)


Has anyone read about this problem? Can you direct me to a forum or FAQ site with some discussion on this topic?

Check and see if you have the radio item turned off, it seems that if it's turned off, shared music won't work either.

Wow! That was an amazingly easy fix. Thanks.


How did you know the radio icon and the sharing preferences are connected? I've had the radio icon turned off for months and never had problems, so I would never have thought of this fix. Thanks again.
