You insert plug a supported USB device into the USB port (they only fit one way, so you can't screw it up). What devices are supported will depend on the individual game.

What are the USB ports on the PlayStation 2 for?

The USB ports on the PlayStation 2 are multi-purpose, and could in theory be used for any peripheral that a game wanted. The most common uses are for the EyeToy, the PlayStation 2 headset, and the Guncon II (a light gun). Some games also support saving screenshots to a USB Flash drive or printing to a USB printer. Plugging in an MP3 player or iPod via USB cable can also be used to charge it while you play the playstation.
