Will the Denon x1000 play music from my HDD connected to its USB?

Hallo Denon x1000 owners!

My question is very important for me:
Will my Denon x1000 recognize a 500Gb HDD connected to its USB socket?

Because if it doesn't I will not purchase a new HDD.

If it does, how should I confiigure the HDD?

I would really appreciate your answers.

Regards,
sobidobi

Lots of good info in the X1000 Owner's manual to include the specifics on "Playing back USB memory devices" (p. 179).

Also note, there is a thread dedicated to the 2013 Denon E/X Series AVRs .....

Thank you for your reply. I thought there was a lot of interesting information about Denon X1000.
But, my question is not answered there unfortunately.
I wonder if a Portable Hard Drive such as Elements HDD can be recognized by the receiver. This info is not in the review.

The restrictions are on page 179. Probably too big of a drive. 5000 files max. 500 folders max.
Fat32 format only. Ntfs doesn't work.

I have read the restrictions alright, and they would not be a problem, but the review only talks about USB memory devices and nothing about Portable Hard Drives. That is my real concern.

If the HDD connects via USB, then by definition it is a USB memory device.

I tried to format a 1tb external drive with fat32. Windows 8.1 only had options for ntfs and exfat.
Haven't tried to connect to receiver yet.

Exfat didn't work. Windows has a 32gb limit on fat32. Found a free app that formatted 1tb drive as fat32 and it worked.

Thank You Friend!
I did the same. Took my 1 Terra USB Memory Device to an expert in my street to convert ExFat to FAT32 and now Denon recognises it alright.
Thank you for all your help!
