Thank you Ian :)

Is there any other computer shops or outlets local to the hampshire area that you think would sell the cable?

Not looking to buy over the internet now, unless it will be delivered before sunday.

My apologies for the specificness, but its for a 10 -soon-to-be- 11 year olds birthday, and he aint gonna get much else.

Look in www.yell.com for a PC repair/supply shop near you not PC world or such, simple really they will make one for you on the spot. ;)

Go to www.yell.com and tap in your local area and search for pc shops or such like.
Then use any digit on your hand, any will do and phone the local pc shops up from the list you get, you may have to try more than 1. And i'm sure one will be happy to make up the cable for you.

Yep thats correct:nod: you can also do it wireless with a PCI card, but a cable is better. [well I find it so];)
