Home sharing is working fine for musics and videos but not for apps. What is wrong?

Home sharing is working fine for musics and videos but not for apps. What is wrong?

i had the same issue as everyone here after upgrading to itunes 10.x.  vista could see xp home share.  ipod touch could see xp home share.
neither could see vista home share.
after several hours of authorizing de-authorizing, rebooting router etc, i knew it had to be a firewall thingy with vista as xp was working fine
i went to this article http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2553 and followed the instructions.  itunes was already in my vista exception list.  on a hunch i deleted the itunes exception and followed the steps to add it again and boom it worked!! i could now see my vista machine from my ipod touch immediately.
something must have screwed up the firewall exception on the upgrade to itunes 10.x
it worked for me, i hope this helps others

  • Sharing music and videos but not mobile apps btw 2 accts on same Mac

    My wife and I each have accounts on our Mac. When we sync our iPhones, I want each of us to be able to sync our own music and video playlists (from a common repository) but *keep our iPhone apps separate*. We are kind of doing it now, but I'm not quite sure how (or why) it's working. I made a network share on a NAS box for our iTunes libraries and also a Shared library supposedly for Music.
    Can anyone outline a definitive way of organizing the folders in the finder and through iTunes? No speculation please: it's too hard to go back.
    Thanks in advance

    Hmm... this is a bit technical,
    Try posting in the iTunes Match forum, you'll probably find more knowledgeable folks there.

  • Works fine in JDK 6.0 but not in jdk 1.5.???????

    Hi all,
    This code converts english date to japanese date but it is working fine in english only. can any body answer why it is so.
    Note : No Comiplation problem in jdk 1.5
    This code works fine in JDK 6.0 but not in JDK 1.5, Why.....?
    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/dd");
            Locale locale = new Locale("ja", "JP", "JP");//locale for Japanese
            Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance(locale);  //japanese calender object
            DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.LONG,locale);
            try{
            Date date = sdf.parse("1930/09/27");
                System.out.println(df.format(date));
            }catch(Exception e){
                System.out.println(e.getMessage());
            }

    Hi,
    If I give the Input date 1930/10/27 (in english), then program must display the date as S5.10.27 (it's japanese date with 'S' indicating ERA)
    But this will happpen only when i run the program in JDK 6.0.
    In JDK 1.5, for the above input, the output is 1930/10/27 (which is wrong)
    Still I don't have compilation and running problems in both. Can anybody expalin why it is so?
    I think i tried my best to restate the question.
    Thanx

  • Hello i have a problem with onfocus function on ipad. i am trying to bring my cursor on a text box on a button click. It works fine with safari web browser but not on ipad. Need a solution.

    Hello i have a problem with onfocus function on ipad. I am trying to bring my cursor on a text box on a button click. It works fine with safari web browser but not on ipad. Need a solution.

    I don't think that a software update from Apple will solve the issues that you are having. You have a rogue installation. After you posted I have just done the following:
    Disk Utility can verify  my partitioned Volume (including my boot disk) AND REPAIR the non-boot disks on the same Volume without a glitch. It repairs the non-boot disks containing data smoothly.
    I have used Mail to send some mails from some Yahoo and Hotmail accounts to my Thunderbird client containing GMail accounts - absolutely normal.
    I have iLife '09 but my iMovie '09 and iPhoto '09 open in a jiffy and I see no issues here. I have 6GB RAM (Maximum) on an early 2008 Macbook Pro with a 750GB hard drive partitioned with 120GB reserved for the Boot Drive.
    I am sorry that I cannot help further but I am sure there must be a way to reinstall the software without having to revert to restoring your ML backup. I have two clones and if you have such I would attempt to do that through that rather than through Time Machine - that is of course if you have a cloned drive.
    Good luck!

  • Code is working fine with OIM9102 BP14 patch but not in OIM9102 BP20.

    Using OIM API calls, I am able to fetch usr_key and ugp_key succesfully when utilityFactory is initialized with system admin login.
    When utilityFactory is intialized with non system admin ID, usr_key and ugp_key is returning as "0".
    This code is working fine with OIM9102 BP14 patch but not in OIM9102 BP20. Do user need any access right to invoke API calls ? Any thing related to this is changed in this patch?
    Environment details:
    OIM 9102BP20
    Websphere 6.1

    No, no more rights are needed. If it is working fine into BP older than this one, raise a SR and ask support guys to file a bug. But you have to show them step-by-step working into the older one and not working on newer. It is quite difficult happen, but maybe this feature broken on new business patch 20.
    I hope this helps,

  • My new Apple password works on my computer and ipad but not my 4s. help!

    I had to reset my apple password because apple store wouldn't let me use my original one for some reason.
    Now I have a new password and it's working on my computer and ipad, but not my 4s, so if I needed an app, I'd have to get it from ipad and it'd sync to my phone.
    I've tried turning my phone on/off, sync with and without wire, called for help (they want $35), nothing works so far. Please help!

    thank you for the quick reply. I've done that I believe but will do so right now and see it it works......

    How did the MP3 files get onto your iDevices Ii they're not in iTunes?
    The simplel rule is: Anything in iTunes can be synced to your devices, but no music files on your devices, except your purchases,  can be synced to your computer.

    The reference article in question says "Manually manage music and videos" but I only have the option to "Manually manage videos" via the iPad on iTunes.  How do I actually manage music?
    Edit: classic Apple.

    If you post from a a question from the bottom of an article's page then you should get its reference, e.g. HT1535 in your case, on the post's title. The ability to edit you post only lasts for 15 minutes and allows you to correct/add extra info.
    I get the 'manually manage music and videos' tockbox as described on that article. If you only 'videos' then are you using iTunes Match on your iPad ? I don't use it but I've seen posts that say having it enabled on a device can affect the syncing of music.

  • Page is working ok in chrome and IE but not working in firefox. jquery problem i guess

    http://184.170.251.149/raschet-shkafa-kupe
    this page is working correctly in chrome and IE but not working in firefox, i cant click and of the dropdown menus(ДСП, доличество дверей). it was working perfectly prior firefox 18. can you please fix the compatibility problem ?

    I was referring to the second page in my above post.
    I disabled JavaScript as a test after loading the page with JavaScript enabled and that worked.<br />
    I also get the selects to open if I right-click instead of left-click the select.<br />
    That way the select get selected (shows a focus ring) and after that left-clicking works as well .
    This assumes that JavaScript is monitoring the left-click, but that script no longer works properly.

  • IMovie 10 and DV Video Quality

    Does anyone know how iMovie handles DV?  Previous versions used Single Field Processing, which threw away every other line of the video.  This resulted in very degraded video quality upon export, especially if exporting to a DVD. I doubt very serious
