I have a MacBook Pro 17" 2.16GHz, Core Duo, Snow Leapord, iTunes 9.2 that I am trying to turn on Home Sharing.


Although I can authorize the MBP, when I try to activate Home Sharing, I get an iTunes Store error (-42408).


I NEED to use iTunes 9 because it is the last version of iTunes that will display non-square podcast imbeded images properly - full screen without letterboxing to a square display.


The reason I need Home Sharing turned on is so I can play videos residing on the MBP on an iPad v1 iOS5.


Can anyone tell me why I am getting this error and what (if anything) I can do to get Home Sharing turned on?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 2.16 GHz, 2GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, FCS2
