Definitely possible if your using MyBookWorld Edition of Western Digital Network Storage, but it's limited.

Meaning, you put music in a public folder and enable iTunes Server

Then, all your devices with iTunes can see the iTunes Shared Library of Music only from the Network Storage device (macs, ipods, iphones, ps3, and xbox)

Non iTune devices have access to separate public folders to share pictures, video, and music

However, you cannot share playlists in the MyBookWorld iTunes Server.

Also, note you can move your entire iTunes library over to a public folder on almost any device PC/MAC/NetworkStorage/TwonkyMediaStorageServerDevice and share everything that way, but you'll need to configure each itunes devices by pointing it to the PUBLIC folder with your music and stuff.

Alert!!!!! Be sure to export your playlists as a backup, just in case something goes wrong....then you can later import them.

Good Luck and Have Fun.
