If you have access to a 3D-Printer you also can print a nice part for this purpose.

Re: Shuts down when entering Mass Storge Mode

well - a good procastination seems to have fixed that problem ! Today, I groaned a bit and thought I'd better have a go at reverting the firmware - but I'll just double-check the problem is still there - and the problem has disappeared!
