How do i read and write data to USB Flash Drive using Arduino?
Which development board should I use?
Are there any guides that I can follow to use Arduino to read and write data to USB Flash Drive?

Any USB Mass Storage Framework for Arduino?

The Arduino is a USB slave. The USB Flash Drive is a USB Slave.

Slaves can't talk to each other. They can only respond to a USB Master/Host.

You could add a USB Host shield (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9947), but you have to write the driver then. Are you up to that challenge?
