I am not sure what usb formats you mean. If you mean filesystems that debian supports via usb then it will support as many filesystems as your kernel supports. Yes you can use NTFS usb drives if you have NTFS driver included in the kernel.

Tux,

Well, if you are using a stock (in other words, the distro's kernel) kernel, you will most likely have ntfs module included in the kernel.

Check the loaded modules first.
Code:
lsmod | grep ntfs
If you don't see anything, you can
1. Try to insert the kernel module. modprobe ntfs --> you have to be root to do this OR
2. Just try to mount your filesystems. Mounting the ntfs partition will insert the kernel module.

If you get any errors on any of the above two steps, you probably don't have ntfs driver included in the kernel (I think that would be highly unlikely). In that case, you may have recompile your kernel.

Look at the linux-ntfs FAQ.
