My Book Essential 2TB - Can I use is as an external drive and not just a back-up device?

I would like to simply use the My Book as an external drive (for itunes and my library of 55,000 songs plus other applications and data) and have "my computer’ recognize it so I can click to open files. Don’t want to use the built-in software that somes with the device. Is this possible and if so, any tips on how to accomplish this?

Thank you!
