    Sorted, found another lead and it works perfectly, weird, it seems some leads are suitable for charging only, others are multi functional, thanks for looking...Charles

    From my limited knowledge of that sort of thing, charging uses 2 pins at the end of the cable, and data uses 4 so if 1 of the data pins is damaged, it will only charge.
