    Sorry if I'm missing something here, but iTunes is not your music player. It's your access point to the iTunes Store. To play music you need to use the Music app.

    This is what the music app looks like on the home screen.

    Well, you could use iPod (it’s orange with an iPod-like symbol on it) to play the music. When you click it you get a list of all music on your iPad. As soon as you tip on one of them playback should start.
    At the bottom you can chose how to display your library (by Artist, Album, Songs, …)
    You'll need this guide: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipad_2_user_guide.pdf

    Per Scifan above, the app is now called Music.

    I have that app loaded and some songs play. I am not seeing any pattern. some play, some dont. Seems like it worked ok before the os 6 update. Is there any way to uninstall the app and reinstall? I have looked everywhere.

    The music app is a native app and cannot be uninstalled. Have you tried deleting the songs that don't play, then reinstall them?

    Hi Angel4avon - welcome to the forum! :)

    Before doing 'anything' drastic, the steps below are the ones I usually use initially when an app(s) is misbehaving - let us know if these maneuvers help or post back here for further advice - good luck!

    The Music app itself is part of the iOS itself. I cannot be uninstalled or reinstalled separately. Try All of Giradman's tips first.
    Are the "purchased" apps bought from the iTunes Store?

    It did not work. Yes, all music was purchased from iTunes Store. I just installed iTunes on my net book and it said I was authorized on 2 computers. I also have it on my desktop computer. Could it be that this ipad is not authorized for my account?

    If you're using the same AppleID for purchasing the music, it should be fine I would think. Does your music (or your iPad itself) get backed up to your PC ever?

    Might pay to back it up, and then restore your iPad from the back up after doing an Erase All Content and Settings from the Settings -> General menu.
