Trouble with creating iTunes homeshare

    • Thread Starter

    Got a new laptop, want to be able to move my iTunes account across, simple enough!

    I have version 10 iTunes or later on both computers (old one has XP, new one Windows 7) and whilst I had no problem creating the home share on this new one, my old one is struggling.

    After I press "Create Home Share", the screen fades out a little (like it does when it's loading so you can't click anything) but then after about 30 seconds the apple bar under "iTunes" switches to "Accessing iTunes Store..." Nothing is coming up on the new laptops iTunes.

    But that's all it does, and I've left it for about 2 hours now. Anyone have any clue what it's doing? We have a fast broadband here, so I don't think that would be the issue?
