It will play files from a USB hard drive (it should be powered). I don't remember the specifics of navigation since this is not something that personally interests me. It does not currently decode flac files but this has been requested and may be done in the future but there is no guarantee of that.
If I remember correctly, some 96/24 downloaded files will work but not all. I think it depends on the specific format. Check the forum at AVS Forums where this has been discussed at some length.
