    I have a Windows 7 computer and a Mac running Show Leopard on the same network. On my mac I can see the Windows machine and be able to see and play music off of that computer. The Windows machine does not show the mac at all.

    I've reinstalled iTunes on Windows multiple times, turned on and off my firewall and antivirus programs and nothing seems to work.

    Any ideas from the crowd? I have an Airport Extreme router too. Any settings on the router that I should be looking at?

    Did you check the box called 'Share my library on my local network' in the iTunes prefs on the W7 side?

    Crap I meant on the Mac side haha but I'm assuming you've already done that as well. Some people are reporting that Windows 7 doesn't play as well with iTunes as Vista did, but maybe this article will help.

    Very true. I install Vista on a separate partition on my HDD check to see if it would work. Worked great.

    I'll check out this article. Thanks for the help.
