DSUSB not working

Phew! Its working now. Must be how I hold my tongue!

I received a new DSUSB unit today. I also received a cable with a 3.5mm stero plub and a 2.5mm plug to connect the Canon 400d. Plugged the DSUSB into my computer. Once it had recognised it I connected up the camera. Set the 400D to "Bulb" opened up DSLR Shutter and run a sequence........nothing!
Downloaded the test program (DSUSB Check) from the Shoestring site. LED on the box light and changed colour when commanded to, but still no joy when trying to activate the shutter. Tried it on the desktop and on the lappy.

Could I have a dodgy cable or am I doing something wrong?
Any thoughts anyone?
