Good question...

I imagine with the standard that USB has setup that a USB powered drive may work. Naturally, I don't have specifics on any of the drives, but trying it out won't hurt either unit. I can't guarantee that it will work.

You will, however, want to format the drive into a Fat32 partition before attaching it to the HT port.

Maybe someone can share their experience. Forum members?

Keep me posted.
