    Trying to set up Home sharing between iPad 2 and PC. I've entered ID in both but the iPad doesn't recongnize the share folder in the iPod Library.
    I can double tap the Library and the pop-up window doesn't pop-up. I get nothin.

    thanks
    JM

    Are you talking about sharing via Bluetooth? If so I don't believe the iPad recognizes most Bluetooth device types. I know it does a keyboard and I think it does a camera. Beyond that I don't know for certain, but I'm pretty sure it won't recognize mice or share folders.

    The solution must be something basic, so please bare with me, while we check a few points.

    Are the PC and iPad on the same wifi network? It suffices, if the PC is connected via Ethernet cable to the wifi router.

    In iTunes (PC), have you turned on HomeSharing under Advanced?
    On the iPad, have you entered your Apple ID under Settings->iPod->Home Sharing

    Homesharing turned on in iPad and PC, with the same login ID.

    Yes, wifi of course.

    Do you happen to have movies in iTunes? Then we could test, whether the issue is related to the iPod app, or if it a general connection problem.

    In Videos, a new tab Shared should appear. Is that true for you?

    Having the exact same issue as MadiPad. Everything set up and turned on, iOS devices (iPhone 4 & iPad with same Apple ID) showing no shared folder. Something to do with Bonjour?

    I had this problem before and tried it with a different router and then everything worked.Also couldn't get the apple remote app to work at the time.Still dont know what the problem was but it was definitely router related.

    Sorry, I am out of here. I just ~ hate ~ troubleshooting router related issues. :D

    If a good ol' restart of the router doesn't help, then goodnight.
