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.

A quick search also found a post where someone mentions that the Onkyo does support NTFS, even better than FAT:

I would definitely still double check before buying, but in my exprience NTFS support is often there even if it's not mentioned in the manual/specs.
I would also check for gapless playback support, navigation, bit depth/samplerates, file format support etc.
