    The Mac shows up on the PC's iTunes sharing section, whereas the PC will not show up on the Mac's iTunes sharing section. I believe I have all the correct settings turned on and such, but I may have missed something (anything in system prefs? or anything on the windows side of things outside of iTunes?)

    Using iTunes 9 (Which I love, by the way, but this problem was in iTunes 8 as well)

    Double check your sharing settings on your PC.

    This is a constant problem that I know a lot of people are having. Does anyone out there have a fix? It could easily be on the Windows OR the Mac side.

    I guess it'd be up to the Firewall settings now. The default is only to discover shared libaries and not share yours.

    Well some more experimenting has been done:
    - A Vista laptop is visible by both the PC and the Mac BUT when opened will only show "Loading ***'s Library" and nothing else will happen. Nothing is available. This happens on both the PC and the Mac.
    - The PC is able to see both other libraries but sometimes they randomly disappear, and will reappear. Again, the Mac's library is the only one actually usable.
