    Just turn on home sharing in iTunes and your whole music library will be available on your iDevices.

    Home sharing is turned on and I have the whole library on my iPad but when I play a song from my iPad it plays but with no sound. The sound is only coming from the desktop comp!

    Go to the music app and you should be able to select your homeshared library via the more - shared buttons.

    What music app? The music app on the iPad only has genres, composers and podcasts

    I'm not sure if I am explaining correctly. My music library is available on all devices but can I listen to the library on the devices ie iPad iPhone or can you only listen on the computer that has the iTunes library. The reason I say this is that when I play the music from my iPad or iPhone there is no sound coming out.

    Are you able to hear any sounds from your iPad? If so, and if you have "home sharing" turned on in your music APP which appears in "settings", it should work.
    If not, you may want to have a "genius" at an Apple Store look at it.

    If you go to the music app on your iPad click on the more button select your iTunes library let it sync to your iPad then you should see all of your music when you see your music you should hit play and you should be able to hear your music I just tried this works fine.
