To restoring Korg M50 to it's factory settings, first press the [MODE GLOBAL] button to enter Global mode. Then, press the [MENU] button, and choose "Load Preload/ Demo Data". When a dialog box appears, select "All Preload PCG" and then press the [OK] button. Finally, when a dialog box appears on the display, press the [OK] button again to execute the function.
Warning! This operation will cause restore any or all of the Programs, Combinations, Drum Kits, User Arpeggio Patterns, and Global settings to their original factory settings. Do not use this function unless you are certain that you want to do this. Hopefully the article of "Reset Korg M50 88-Key Keyboard Workstation" can help you.

After updating the firmware, you likely must do a factory reset. This is probably required so the keyboard will read and decide how much ram actually exists. At this site do the "factory reset" version:

Almost all these plastic "wonders" have a set of screws... sometimes they are hidden under rubber feet OR under labels. When these are out, often there are little plastic protrusions that mate to depressions in the opposite site that have to be popped open. The key is to go slow and NOT to exert too much force. Sometimes they "hide" screws in the battery compartments as well. Often when you open these devices they go sproing and the little plastic buttons fall out of the front cover, so NOTE where they go. Rotating knobs often must be pulled off the shaft

It sounds like your ROM battery, which the ROM contains and stores the patches for the keyboard, has gone completely dead and your keyboard is dead in the water. However, if you can get a MIDI to USB converter and get the battery changed, then you can reload the patches back onto the keyboard.

I have worked on a Korg M1 Workstation and have had to replace the battery(CR2032) and then had to run a program called "MIDI-OX" which also gave me access to the patches needed in order to restore the keyboard to factory patch settings.

Take a look at this AFTER you have gotten the battery replaced. I will tell you that replacing most batteries is a very intricate job as, the bottom of the keyboard has to be removed, as well as a lot of the internal boards. I had to draw a diagram and mark certain pieces so I would know where they went and in what order they have to be re-attached. My advice is take it to someone who works on electronics unless you want to DIY (not recommended) to get the battery replaced.

Hope this helps.

Make sure all midi and usb settings are correct on both ends. Check cables. If all else fails try factory reset.

I will assume you want to sync the two as one. I have one of these sitting in a closet. The 3200 will record 12 tracks at a time if I remember correctly. I believe the Korg will sync to Midi Time code. I just wonder if the midi implementation allows for start and stop code. Anyway, I found this information:
x2. MIDI messages used by the D3200 Note On (Note, velocity), aftertouch, pitch-bend:
The D3200 uses these messages to control effects.
Program change:
The D3200 uses these messages to switch scenes.
Control change:
The D3200 uses these messages to control mixer and
effect parameters.
MMC (MIDI Machine Control):
MMC messages can be transmitted from the D3200 to control an external MMC-compatible sequencer or recorder. MMC messages received from an external sequencer or recorder can be used to control the D3200.
MTC (MIDI Time Code):
The D3200 can transmit or receive MTC messages to
synchronize with an external sequencer or recorder.
MIDI Clock:
The D3200 can transmit MIDI Clock. It can also receive MIDI Clock if you have selected MIDI Clock for the tempo track and are recording the tempo track.
