I can't speak for the Pioneer but I know the Alpine's will work with some hard drives. You just need to power up the external enclosure if need be. What is much easier is to use a thumb drive. With the Alpine's that have a USB port you can just plug your thumb drive into it and it will scan the folders for music. A head unit like the iDA-x100 gives you the best control over your music and folders. The Alpine head units also work with just about anything that uses MTP, so you could use a Zen or another device too. Pretty much the Zune is the one portable media player that doesn't work with anything yet.

Specs state

"USB input (for Windows Media devices, USB storage devices, and iPod)"

More than likely a standard USB key, or external harddrive will work.
