    Or rather https://www.picoreplayer.org/how_to_add_usb_hdd.shtml - which
    is the official server.

    I don't think this describes what the OP wants, his (friend's) USB drive is connected to a PC, NOT to the RPi.

    I don't see much point in having a RPi as a music server if you store the music on a USB drive attached to a PC, which would need to be running.
