So what you want is a mini-USB to USB adapter? Lots on TradeMe. Also depending where you are you should be able to get it from Jaycar or (at a price) RS Components. Dick Smith should have it, but not sure. Keep in mind there are 2 types of mini-USB plugs but there is a generic socket available that takes both plugs. You should find all the info on Wikipedia.

What I am after is very tricky to find - I have had no luck at DSE so far.

The adapter is refered to as  "A" Male to Mini "B" 5 Pin Female
