Hi
So i have a bit of a weird question. What i need to know is if take a piece of metal and short all of the usb pins of a usb flash drive (memory stick) together for a prolonged time will that damage or degrade the stick in any way?
I know it doesn't do anything if i do it for a minute because i tested it but will it damage it if i leave it shorted for like weeks or months?

Wow that was a fast reply! Thank you!

Well to answer your question i have an old 10 port usb hub which i accidentally destroyed by plugging it to the wrong power supply. So now i just want to use it as a base/holder for all my usb sticks. And as you can guess by now i measured the usb pins on that hub and they are all shorted and i didn't know if that would hurt my memory sticks!
