    I have iTunes installed on my windows 7 pc. How do I open the library on my iPad to play into another stereo system? I can't open iTunes on my iPad other than go to the store.

    Download the Apple Remote app from the app store. With iTunes running on your PC you will need to insure you "turn on home sharing" under the advanced settings tab in iTunes. Once done you can access all your iTunes media on the iPad via the Apple Remote app provided your PC and iPad are on the same WiFi network. iTunes has to be running on the PC thou during the streaming from your PC to the iPad.

    iTunes on the iPad is only for purchasing stuff. To play your music use the Music app.

    Ok, this noob installed the remote app. I can now see iTunes on the iPad. I hit play, the player scrolls the timeline of the song, but no audio. I DO have audio in other apps like Air Video. I'm sure I'm missing a setting somewhere. Where would that be,please.

    The remote app controls the music (in iTunes) on the computer, using the computer's speakers (or other connected audio device).

    To play your computer's iTunes library on the iPad you use Home Sharing.

    iOS: Setting up Home Sharing on your device

    You don't need the remote app, thats for control of your itune library on your PC so it will output audio from whatever the pc is connected to, unless you connect your pc to your hifi, then it is what you want.

    For payback on the ipad (or anything its connected to) use homesharing, turn homesharing on in itunes on PC and ipad and then use the music app and press the more button then Shared and your itunes library should appear.

    My iTunes library is seen on the iPad. I can also see that the song is playing. No audio out of the headphone jack. All the sharing settings seem correct. Just
    no audio.

    Somethings to try, if you have not already.


    1) Make sure you've turned the volume up. The iPad keeps different volume leves for the headphone and speaker, so do expect it to play just because the speaker did.

    2) Make sure the headphones are firmly seated. It's easy to think they are, especially if you have a cover, and the jack gets caught on the edge.

    3) In Settings > Music, check your Volume Limit setting.

    4) While it should not affect Music playback, you should also check to make sure you are not muted. This can either be the slide switch next to the volume rocker, or in the multitask bar (double tap home and slide the icons to the right). The settings are here: iPad: Understanding the side switch

    5) It never hurts to restart the iPad, or reset if that does not work.

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
