One of your problems is that USB memory devices need to be driven by a USB host or USB On-The-Go (OTG). Not all of the microcontroller USB devices can work as hosts or OTGs. The FTDI 232 family of interfaces don't either. 

SD devices can run from SPI. If it were on an AVR, there is a nice library for working with SD. There ought to be such a library for PICs.
