Playing Audio from an external hard drive

My son has filled up his internal hard drive on his laptop ( HP Pavillion zv5000) with music. So I was thinking of getting him an external drive so he could transfer his music collection to the external device. Can audio be played directly from the external drive or would he have to transfer files to the internal storage before playing ? What about direct transfer to his iPod from the external device ?
If this is the objective what specific products on the market should I be looking at ? Alternatively, what characteristics are most important for me to consider given this usage pattern ?
