Windows Phone 8.1 and USB Flash Drive Compatibility

USB flash drive compatibility is already available on Android and one can use interesting accessories like SanDisk USB dual drive with top-end Android phones like GS3, GS4, S5 and HTC One. Some of us are curious if WP8.1 brings this compatibility to Lumias?

The short answer is no. We tried using a 16GB SanDisk Dual USB drive with our Lumia 520 running Windows Phone 8.1 and it does not work. There is no file explorer to browse the files stored on the flash drive.

We put some music into the root directory of flash drive and the Music app failed to find any files.
