Also what is the purpose of the USB mini-B with proprietary? The only devices that I own that have USB require power from the device connected to like a hard drive. I would imagine that if I connect the calculator to my seagate portable HD I would drain the batteries very fast. Again I have not been able to find any reference to either cable.To clarify further on this point, the port (like the one on your portable HD) is for connecting to a host like a computer rather than to peripherals like flash drives. The cable with mini B plugs on both ends is for connecting to other calculators to transfer programs, Apps, and files back and forth. As tifreak8x said, the USB port is both for charging the calculator and for transferring files to and from a computer.
