Thanks, I checked some of that but I'll have to spend some time on all of it.
I guess what I don't understand is about how the iPad even knows to look for a shared folder. I enabled sharing, but now does the iPad search for a shared folder? When does it do this and how? When I enabled sharing, nothing changed on the iPad. I'm old school and need to see things chugging away to know they're working. I see nothing going on. I'm also not getting any options to look for more folders when I double tap "Library" in the iPad's iPod app.
I don't get it.
