    On the media app select user devices and you can select USB. The user manual has more detail instruction.

    If it doesn't show up at all, then it is probably formatted in NTFS.
    Format it to fat32 and it should work.

    Anyone got the step on how to export music to FLAC format from iTune?

    I use apple iTune a lot and a lot of my musics are purchased through it. Anyway to export high quality to use via USB?

    You can't go from low quality to high quality. even if you convert MP3 or AAC to FLAC, you will just have bigger files with the same quality.
