Default How to connect USB pen drive to AUX port?

I have a SONY 5800 - VCD player as the HU which has an AUX port at the rear. I would like to connect a USB pen drive through this AUX port. Gurus, please, let me know-
1. if this is possible ?
2. if possible, do I need some special gadgets to connect pen drive to AUX?

Thanks

I believe that there is no simple way to connect a USB pen drive to AUX port.

AFAIK, AUX port acts more like a streaming port. So the device connected to the AUX port should have the capability to stream the music. In case of USB pen drive, it acts more like a storage device and typical USB support head unit know how to read data from USB.

1.By no means is this possible.
2.If you have a USB Mp3 player then you can connect audio out from the Mp3 player to the aux in of the HU.
