I can't get to my FW on the USB. I need to upgrade from v6.xx to v7.1 xx. I have tried a Brocade USB and 2 others. I've read the OS v6.4 and v7.x USB documentation. I tried using the GUI to activate the USB port but no luck. I put the FW on the USB creating the folder structure: config, firmware, firmwarekey,support. I have FOS 6xx and 7xx in the firmware folder. I can't Enable or, - list any content. I have search the forum. Are the specific brand name USBs that work? Using a usb is the only way i can upgrade a pair of remote switches?

As per Brocade documentation, only Brocade branded USB devs can be used. I am not familiar with the GUI but, via CLI, the command to mount the USB device is usbstorage -e.
If you cannot upgrade the FW with the USB device, you should try to do it via FTP. Take a look at the FOS admin guide, there is a chapter dedicated to FW upgrades that explains the whole process.

In addition to what felipon has shared, there are a few things I wanted to comment on in regards to the USB device(s).

Thanks Mike and felipon, What Brocade document lists the approve USBs? I've read most of the v64x and v7.x documentation but haven't seen specific brands of USBs listed.
