So sorry if this has been asked before - I could not find a ‘search forum’ facility. My issue must be fairly common.
I have iTunes on my windows laptop with a mixture of imported CD’s and downloaded music including all the album covers etc. I have a good quality docking station with speakers that has no wifi or internet connectivity itself. I have purchased an Apple Airport express, joined it my local wifi network, and connected the analogue output of the Airport Express to my docking station. Using iTunes on my laptop I can now stream my CD’s and internet radio to the docking station in ‘tip top’ quality- great!
But now I would like to take it one step further. I have copied over the complete iTunes folder on my laptop (Music/MyMusic/iTunes) to a newly created public folder on my WD MBL 2TB.
I would now like to use my iPad 2 to control the streaming of music directly from the MBL to the docking station. In other words I want to switch off my Windows Laptop running iTunes, and use the iPad 2 instead.
I cannot download my music to the iPad and stream from there because the iPad does not have sufficient hard disk capacity.
Any help would be appreciated, even if only a link to a previous thread on a similar topic. Many thanks.
