Plugging into stereo receiver


I have a Pioneer SC-05 stereo receiver with a USB connection on the front panel.  When I plug in the external hard drive to the receiver. I’m unable to locate the device  thru the home media gallery to play my music files.

Is it even possible?   Thanks for any help.

It may be a format issue with the drive. You’ll have to check into your stereo requirements it may need the drive formatted FAT32. Just a guess but things like PS3 and some video players require the FAT32. The externals for Windows come formatted NTFS.


Yeah, looks like you’re right.  Thanks for the reply.
