    Windows Phone 8.1 support flash drives?

    I have a Nokia Lumia 1520 Win 8.1 phone. When I plug in my to USB to Micro USB (OTG) transfer lead and plug in a flash drive, I get no reaction from the phone. How do I use it to transfer photos, docs, etc. from the flash drive?

    Thanks for that, but I did know how to do what you suggest with a PC to Phone connection. However, I want to know why my Flash Drive is not showing up in File Explorer on my phone when connected to my phone, so that I can transfer photos, etc. to my phone.
