I have about 250GB of music on a toshiba hard drive. I just bought a SONY STRDH820 receiver. It wont plug straight in with USB. How else can i do this? I have alot of 24 bit vinyl rips and flac files. It would takes ages to put it all on dvd rs an cd rs.

I am a novice so any help would be appreciated.

You need something that you can plug the HDD into and stream from. Just look up streaming devices on google. Logitech do some stuff as well as other manufacturers. In fact a lot of newer Blu-Ray players will allow you to connect a HDD and play music from it. Though check which formats they support.
