It's probably because AFAIK the S3 doesn't support USB mass storage mode, only MTP*
. USB devices like the Onkyo can't mount MTP only devices, as MTP doesn't allow direct access to the device's file system. In fact MTP devices will only mount on a PC or Mac. Android devices that do support USB mass storage mode, should work OK with the Onkyo.
* Media Transfer Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You could try this, but it does involve rooting and some hacking...
