    I have searched through many a threads here and have also contributed to a few. However this one I can't find an answer to.

    The setup:

    three computers, one running Windows XP SP3, SL 10.6.4 and L 10.5.8.

    All three are running iTunes 9.2

    The windows xp box is the "server" of the iTunes main library.

    This is where it is strange. I can see all three library's (depending on which computer I am on)

    I can see the shared library's and they all have the little house with the music note.

    The problem is I can't share any music from one account to the other? If I open up one of the shared library's and try to drag and drop some music into it, the files will not drop.

    Doesn't matter what computer I am on.

    I have tried the "automatically add to library" folder and that works about 50% of the time. it will send files over but a good majority of the time it will not copy to all shared library's.

    I have checked the router settings and also made sure all the settings from within iTunes is correct. I have also made sure all of the accounts are logged into the same iTunes account etc. But nothing seems to be working. Does anybody have any other suggestions?
