Where are you trying to get your flash drive to work?

 

What are you pluging it into?

 

USB Ports are not enabled on the set top boxes or DVRs. If you have a DVR and install media manager, you can view files from your PC on your TV through the DVR.

No Verizon or cable company DVRs can play music or videos from a flash drive.   The FiOS DVRs only play certain video files stored on a computer running the Media Manager software.

 

If you want to play video files from a USB thumbdrive, then you'll have to buy a product like the WD TV Live Media Player.
