Dave, I had the same issue as you, and tried different flash drives with the same result. I then tried formatting the flash drives to EXFAT, and had the same disapointing results. As I suspect you know, the manual (ha, ha, ha) provides very little guidance and makes no mention of the USB format requirements.
I have since reformatted my flash drives to NTFS, and now the EP950 can access them just fine. Playback from the USB and file transfer to the HDD works nicely with the EP950 USB 2.0 port, and file transfer of 4.5GB DVD .ISO files from my Corsair USB 3.0 flash drive is really pretty quick.
I would suggest you try formatting your flash drive to NTFS, I think you will be pleased with the reuslts.
I have owned this media player for a little over a week and am trying very hard to like this unit since it has so much potential. I guess I am finding my way through trial and error, and so far I have no major complaints. I guess as long as it does what I expect it should, I can live with it even though the formware seems a little like a beta version that could have used some more refinement prior to launch.
I bought this unit fully intending to stream DVD and BD ISO files. After streaming a fews DVD ISOs and reading the feedback from others, I am wondering if streaming larger BD files might be a little like asking for trouble until the firmware seems a little more stable. While I have a growing library of BD and 3D BD, I have hundreds of DVDs, and have only streamed basic DVD .ISO files so far. Video quality while streaming DVDs seems pretty good on my Samsung PN59D8000, but the EP950 did drop the audio for a second or so a few times for no apparent reason.
I installed a WD 3TB Caviar Green HDD, and so far playback from the HDD has been very good. I do hope in time the EP950 will have the bandwidth to handle streaming 3D BD .ISO files, but I guess as long as as the storage and playback from the HDD is stable, I can live with that for now.
