So if you're asking whether you can connect a USB hard drive on a USB OTG cable connected to Chromecast for playing/accessing stuff on it, No.
If you're trying to use a USB hard drive for FlashCast ROM/mod flashing, I'm not sure if that will work.
In either case, you need a powered OTG cable, as Chromecast does not provide power on the USB - it expects to receive it there.
Ok but did you mean that its impossible to connect an Hard drive to stream an Video from it with flashing the device or without
ok without it wont work i know but with an Custom Rom or root ??
