Hi, is there a way to stream music from a WD ShareSpace hard drive (NAS) to my iphone?
I know WD released an app that allows you to access photos on a WD ShareSpace from your iPhone.. but haven't found anything about music.

Any ideas?

It is not exactly what you want, but look at Orb: http://new.orb.com/
You can stream music, video, photos, etc, and not only to your iPhone, but to many other places too.

OrbLive will do what you want. $9.99 on the iTunes store.
There is a free version to try it out.
It will require that you leave your Mac running however.

The nice part of Orb is that it will allow it to play ANY kind of media on the iPhone, even media that the iPhone does not normally play.

Also, if you truly want to hack in DLNA compliance to an iPhone, read here:

or try one of this app:

I found out I can just browse with Safari to the Sharespace's built-in twonky media server, and open any file I want. Safari just launches ipod's media player, so all is good :)
