Is this possible? I know you'll be able to plug in a USB memory stick with songs on and the Touch will find them and index/start playing them. However, will you be able to attach an external hard drive via USB and the same thing happen?

Intrigued by the whole Touch/Squeezebox concept, but don't want the expense of a server or to need to have a PC turned on to listen to music.

Yes.

And the USB drive is shared on the network, so you don't need to unplug it to move it around and load files...just copy across the network.

It would be a serious error on Logitec's part if you couldn't, as to the OS a USB pendrive and a USB HDD are basically the same thing.
