broken hd500 and patches


So I bought a second hand hd500.
I come home with the thing, cant get no connection with a pc. I look at the usb port and notice the little pins are bend and cannot make good connecting to the plug. I brought it to a electronics repairshop. See if they can fit in a new port. There is no warranty on the machine and I have no invoice.
The man tried first the weld a usb cable straight to the motherboard, but even then no connection to the pc. So I guess the software is broken though it runs fine.
Just no way to update or use hd edit.

My question is this, is there a way to read out patches from customtone. Hd edit only works of the hd is connected. So I would like to download a patch and then read out what parameters are set.

Does anyone know here?

Luckily, yes there is.

HD Edit can run independently. Download the patch, open it in Edit and record the settings on paper. Roundabout, but it works.
