Flex 7 won't recognize USB storage

I have the Flex 7 tablet.  I'm trying to connect a 64gb flash drive through a OTG adapter and into the micro USB port.  After all is connected, it says "Preparing External USB storage" and then does nothing.  I go into Settings > Storage and at the bottom where it should recognize a USB storage, it doesn't.  I can't change the default write disk to the USB storage either.  Am I missing something?  I put in a microSD card and it recognizes it instantly.  Can I not connect a USB flash drive?

Sorry... I meant the 8" Flex tablet.

Good job team, apparently you have to figure things out for yourself.  For those of you still interested... the Flex will only recognize FAT32 formatting... thus the USB flash drive needs to be formatted for FAT32.  With some magical tinkering with software IT IS possible to format a 64gb flash into FAT32, don't listen to people who say it's not possible.
