I plugged the USB cable into my 50G without first touching ground to remove the static from my body, and blew out the USB port on my 50G. I tried removing the batteries to force a cold start, and re-flashed the calculator from the newRPL flash card. I tried rebooting my Desktop computer, and also confirmed that the USB cable/port is still good by attaching my DM-15L.

I truly have a DEAD USB PORT on my 50G. I was having so much fun experimenting with newRPL and the link to the emulator.

I can still have fun with the emulator, and the calculator still works, but it just does
not link to the emulator anymore. (unless I find a good deal on another 50G).

Could it be dirt inside the socket shorting pins? One last desperate thing to try is to blow the socket with a duster just in case.

I feel your pain: I had a powered USB hub connected to a development board, the power supply of the hub failed and released 12V, which the hub promptly distributed into all my devices, fried most of them including my board.

An alternative for you would be to buy a 40gs and do a keyboard face transplant, you could even do an SD card socket transplant per a recent post.
