    I recently purchased an iPad 1. I'm eager to get the home sharing working so I can play music on it from a home desktop. I can already do this using a laptop through iTunes. My problem is that when I click on my home network from one pc I get a message saying "Unable to turn on Home Sharing". This is my main computer that has all my music on it. I can load this library through my laptop and I can also load my laptop's library through my iPad. But it is the desktop's library that I need to access. Both library's have the same name-could that be the issue? Also my desktop library has a hell of a lot of songs in it, could that be the problem?

    Any ideas?

    As far as I know, having a lot of songs wouldnt cause the problem your having. What OS are you using?
