    where would people recommend to get a cheap cable from? I bought 1 a while ago off ebay, but it doesn't fit (the 16 pin plug is too big). I already have the programme just the cable needed

    I had the same issue but I trimmed the area around the port a little bit with a knife and its fine now.
