I have about 70 of my 426 albums on my Mac (iTunes) also on my iPad 3 (downloaded/synced) and my iPad is now running iOS 6.1--- and I can play the other 356 albums (about 1900 songs) on my iPad by using sharing on the iPad-- via selecting my Mac's music library (called "Steve's Music").  I see all the 1900 songs in LIST view on my iPad, but I only see about 80 albums in the album view!!!

 

Interestingly enough, if I use the iOS App "Remote" when I select "Steve's Music" I get a nice, colorful album view list of ALL MY 426 albums-- but of course with the App REMOTE I cannot play them on the iPad, rather can only select my Mac or my Apple TV.

 

Why if the Album view works via iOS remote app to show all my albums and album artwork, does it NOT WORK in the Music App in order to play music from my Mac (Steve's Music library) ON the iPad?????????

 

Any suggestions or comments appreciated!

 

Best regards,

    I found this answer in another thread

     

    Try this fix.

     

    Go to Settings -> Music -> Tap on your Home Sharing Apple ID, and Sign Out.

     

    Then enter your Apple ID again and password and tap done.

     

    Then open your Music app and go to more then shared.

     

    Worked for me.

    Search in the music app works fine on my iPhone and iPad without crashing.

     

    It sounds as though you need to reset the iPad or Iphone

    or if that does not work, make sure all your content is on the computer and restore to factory settings

    Then it willbe like a new ipad and you can set it up again and transfer all your content over

    I have about 9,000 songs in my itunes library that share over to my iPhone with no issues.

     

    If it was your mac you could just reinstall the iTunes app not the whole OS. On an iPad you cannot do this.

     

    For some people this is an issue with search but I have never seen it on my devices

     

    I am running IOS 6.1 and Mac 10.8.2

     

    Resetting the iPad is the first easy step. Very quick. Then move on to restore to factory settings on your iPad again to restore takes about 10 mins but you will then have to resync your content as well

     

    If that does not work you may have to look at restoring from a new copy of ios 6.

    Interesting I just looked at the search on my music app.  When I type in abba it finds Abba as an artist, The Abba as an album along with a Carmen LP i have The artist is Claudio Abbado so that works right.

     

    When I scroll down to the Songs it shows 17 results but no artwork or track details.

     

    When I click on any track i get Abacab by Genesis playing. So I guess it is a bug.
