If you're having problems with the hardware of a DM41X or DM42, post about them here.

I have no issues with Big Sur & DM42 and the cable I mentioned 5 postings above. With other cables with shorter plug and less secure fit I had disconnects and hence FAT trouble on Mac and Windows.

I'm investigating here, if the issues are with Big Sur or also with Parallels (to run Windows and Linux Virtual machine) that handles usb or other type.
Curiously, two times the FAT corruption was accessing the /State folder.

EDIT: ...or also the hardware of my MacBook Pro? or the calculator FW? :)

I bought this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013C ... UTF8&psc=1

It has an extra long tip.
Thanks for the "tip" on the extra long tip! :)
I just bought one and it works very well!

Most stuff sold on Amazon is already out of spec, so why not offer some funky USB connectors, ha ha.

The USB connector can be slightly modified, you can cut off 2-3 mm of insulation.
