    The shared library for Music - in iOS 5 - will be in the Music app in the More Tab at the bottom. In the Videos app the tab for the shared library is at the top of the app.

     

    You do have iTunes running on your computer - correct.

     

    Have to tried restarting or resetting your iPad?

     

    Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.

     

    Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.

    You need to resync your stuff from iTunes.

    Try some real basic stuff. Quit iTunes, restart your computer and restart the iPad and then try the shared libraries again.

     

    One thing that I noticed when I had an issue like you are experiencing was that I was actually losing my Internet connection and didn't realize it. I rebooted my router and then all worked OK again. My point is don't forget that the shared library works over your network so if you have an network issue, that can cause problems as well.
