    thanks for the help ,remembered i had an old t23 in the shack i used to log calls till it died ,attached was a comfast model CF-300ns usb adaptor ieee802.11b/g/n 300mbps wireless adaptor info for any one else with the same problem.cost was AU$14 some 2 years ago on the net.

    thought nothing ventured nothing gained ,loaded the mini disk played about for about 20mins and switched off the internal card and BINGO works like a charm
