Has anyone found the "Import" button in iTunes 11 which is used in Home Sharing?

 

This is not "Import CD", but instead the button used to copy iTunes Store purchases from one device to another, when both are authorized, instead of streaming between them.

 

I like to use Bootcamp for gaming and the kids really don't like it when their shows aren't in iTunes.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I know that you can drag files from one device to another with iTunes 11 and Homesharing. Does dragging achieve what you need? I found the new menu system to be a little complicated for this, so sometimes I turn on the side bar using View > Show Sidebar and that makes it a lot easier (for me at least) to add back and forth.

    For the import button to show up then you need to ensure that the HomeSharing on eeach computer was set up with the same Apple ID. This may be different to what that machine uses to login to itunes. That does not matter.

     

    If there are two different Apple IDs involved then you will have to authorise each machine with the other Apple ID

     

    Store > Autorise this computer

     

    Suggest you turn off Home Sharing

     

    File > Home Sharing > Turn off Home Sharing on both machines.

     

    Recreate the Home Share using the SAME Apple ID
