yes intrade -checked the cable- no other one available, but it must be allright as it makes that kaplonk sound when connecting to PC.
turned it on- off several times -unplugged re-plugged etc. will now restart PC

Well - I now have to admit to being an idiot. Re-booting solved the wee problem.

Good day to you
