    I attached external hard drive to Airport Extreme, set up home network and mounted the hard drive. My MacBook Pro can see the drive and all contents, including iTunes library. Our home PC which is running Windows XP also recognizes the drive and can see iTunes library in My Computer. Here is the problem. When I try to chose which iTunes library to open (Shift+click) in Windows XP, the library on my external HD is not visible so I cant open it! I see the cover art and music folder, just not the actual library. What am I missing here? I can see it in My Computer, why not in iTunes?! Please help. I need to link my external library to XP. Connecting external directly to PC will not work because I have a Time Capsule there. TXXX!!!!:eek:

    I figured it out. Updated PC iTunes to the latest version. Then manually entered library name when choosing library! Worked like magic!
