I would suggest using something different?, USB is EXTREMELY difficult to do, and in this case you need USB host (as you're effectively emulating a computer), which even the USB capable PIC's don't provide.

Assuming you need large quantities of storage?, how about a memory card?, there are a number of 16F877 implementations for that.

I require storage around 512kb.
I want storage in a way that i can remove the memory card from my circuit and transfer it by connecting it to a PC.
pls provide me the details

Yes, using a memory card like an SD card is a much more reasonable solution. It's been done many times before (especially by people making MP3 players and such) and all you need to do is buy a USB memory card reader for your computer, which can often be had for $10-20 if you want one that mounts permanently in your computer, or less than $10 for some small, pocket-sized ones such as:
