How can i copy songs from another library to my itunes library with homesharing?  I see the other libraries, but cannot drag the songs into my library.  The help window says to use the "show menu" at the bottom, but I don't have that menu with itunes 11.

    You can do this in 2 ways.


    1) You can enable the sidebar and you can drag and drop like you used to be able to.  To turn on Sidebar in iTunes 11, go to View > Show Sidebar


    2) Another way is to connect to your Home Share from the drop-down menu from the left (where it says Music) and select your Home Share.  Once you are connected to your Home Share, select Music and you should see a button that says "All Items" and on the right, you should see the Import button.  To copy, select the songs you want to import and then click on Import.

    I seemed to be having the same problem.  I recently updated all computers to iTunes 11.  I could see the other libraries etc. but could not drag any songs to or from the other libraries.  Because of this I thought Homesharing was turned ON for my computer.  I stumbled upon Homesharing in the drop down menu "File" for iTunes and then selected Home Sharing- Turn ON, entered Apple ID and password.  Now I can drag and drop songs just as I did in iTunes 10.  Hope this helps.
