You can use a computer as an intermediary. Connect mini-USB from phone (assuming it has that capability). Connect USB flash drive to computer. Transfer files. What are you trying to do?

There should be no problem doing this.
Get a cable for the phone. Plug the phone into your computer. Plug the flash drive in. If you can, drag and drop onto the phone. If not, use the software that Sony provides (if they do)

I'm trying to play videos from the flash drive on the phone. I don't want to use a memory card. So I want to try to connect a flash drive to my phone.

You can't make a direct connection. You'd have to transfer the files from the flash drive to the computer and then from the computer to the phone.
