Re: getting to work your pc music files through the usb...
Connect yamaha 2700 to network, use Windows media player 11. Once you connect, go to WMP 11 Library, Media Sharing and allow the "Unknown Device" (yamaha) to share media. It is a little finicky, it will see your folders, but it it will only play some MP3's depending on what bit rate they were recorded.

You said "...on reciever cd out in the audio box..." but it should the reciever IN that you connect to. Also is the BlueRay player capable of playing CD's ? When you press play on the sony remote, do the seconds start counting on the screen ? (ie: is it playing, but no sound is coming out?)
Double check the actual file contents. Right click on your music files and verify that the data exists. This will be evident by the value of kilobytes the song is made of. Next verify that your connection method to the receiver is viable...there should be either an indicator on your computer or the receiver to confirm the connection integrity.
If you find that your data does not actually exist then it would be up to your discretion exactly what to do about that as that problem is NOT relevant to the Yamaha HT receiver.
If you find that the data DOES exist, disconnect the computer from the receiver and restart the computer. Reconnect the computer and try again.
If your receiver simply doesn't reconize the usb, than try a hard reset to the receiver. To do this, power the unit on, than unplug power to it for about 15 seconds. Another item you can check is the type of files that your music is on your usb. It is possible that your receiver is not able to play that type of file. If thats the case try downloading a different format of music onto your usb and see if that works.
Did you use Midi files when creating the Sound Track? If so your encoder may not have had the software to translate the Midi to the Mpeg2 sound track. Will it play back on other devices or just the Yamaha?
