Replacing a measly $5 cable is FAR better than paying out $150+ dollars in labor costs to replace the fried USB ports on the motherboard of a game system.


If they're fried it isn't from plugging in and unplugging devices.

Broken?

Sure, but plugging **** in isn't going to fry the ports.

Static. Electricity.

There's also wear and tear from people not plugging things in straight and bending contacts.

A "fried port" is a general term for killing the port one way or another.

I'm not sure if the Kingston flash drives are compatible with Xbox 360. Out of the 4 that I've owned only 1 worked, the rest didn't meet the performance requirements.

You're a Brit IIRC, your version of English isn't the only one, the word fried has been used as a euphemism for "broken" for a very long time.
