The LPC1768 can act as a USBHost, so yes, you can connect external storage. E.g. here someone uses it to connect USB Flash Drive.

However... I have no idea if the FATFileSystem driver supports drives that big. Also you'll need to format the hard disk as FAT.

Did you get it to work ?? Did you need to re-format the HDD ?
