Worked fine last night. Down loaded itunes 5.0, now not working.

When I click my connection it says: "The remote speaker "xxxx" is currently being used by someone else. Please select another speaker at the bottom of the itunes menu"

Must be 5.0?

How can I fix this?

    Have you tried simply power cycling the Airport Express?

    Eric - the error message that the Airport Express is "being used by someone else" is not really telling you the true nature of the problem. I think what is happening here is due to a software bug in iTunes 5.0, rather than a real problem with another user tying up the Airport Express. I really think this is a problem we are not going to be able to solve - it is going to require a fix from Apple.

    To talk to a real Apple tech support person, you need to call AppleCare - see http://www.apple.com/contact/

    Unless you have AppleCare warranty coverage for a recent Mac purchase you will be charged for the support call before they start talking to you - and it's not cheap.
