iTunes 10 Home Sharing Help
I am currently trying to use the Home Sharing feature on iTunes to transfer music from one library (the family laptop) to a new library (my new school computer). When I click "done" after entering the proper information, the home sharing icon just disappers on my both laptops. I have the proper "library search settings" on. The computers are connected on both the same wi-fi network and are connected by an ethernet cable. I am logged in with the proper account on both computers. Can anyone help explain this issue?
