    I've set up file sharing and i can share anything and see it on a PC on the network except for iTunes Music. Other PC simply can not see it.

    Is this some sort of Apple trickery? Whats going on? I want to share the music files themselves.

    Thanks

    Do you have the iTunes Music folder added to the Sharing system preferences? Make sure File Sharing is checked and add the folder to the list of Shared Folders on the right. Also check the Users listed for that folder and make certain Everyone has at least Read Only access.

    Yes, its added with the exact same parameters as all my other shared folders. Everything works, but iTunes Music... fishy.

    I just tried this on my network and I have the same problem. :confused: With some searching it seems maybe the only solution is to move the iTunes Music folder into the Public, or Shared folders.
