Nowadays, there are a lot of TV's, radio's and etc. with USB port. This enables the user to hook up their USB flash  drives to instantly play mp3's and even videos. Is there an app, tweak, or anyway that I can hook up my Nexus 7 to my TV via USB and act like a normal USB flash drive so my TV will be able to play it contents? Thanks!

best thing to do it plug it in and see what happens.  the firmware on the TV will determine if the N7 will be recognized as a data source.  You also may need to toggle the various settings on the N7 and TV (if the TV has any).

my TV see's that the N7 device is plugged in but then ignores it as an unrecognized source.

You can always transfer files to a recognized USB device via your desktop or with stickmount (needs root) on your N7.
