You can simply install iTunes on your PC or MAC computers and use iTunes as a jukebox to browse or listen to the music you stored on your eTRAYz HDD. After enabling the iTunes Server, iTunes will recognize the eTRAYz as an iTunes client under SHARED. Therefore, you can share your music to others via iTunes without spending time to download files.
