There isn't native support for USB connection with Hyper-V. If you want to access data on the drive you can setup a shared drive on the USB device. There is a tool below that you can look over for USB access within Hyper-V.
Not possible with Hyper V but there is a work around. You can access USB over network

It is possible with VMware.
