The A to A cables are abundant on line. You can also get a B female to A
male adapter for a couple of bucks (euros, whatever...) and any normal
USB cable will work for you after you use that.

Others on your side of the pond may be able to help you find stores like
www.cyberguys.com where you can search on "131 0936" and find the
adapter for $2.99 or "131 0910" and find the cable for $1.75

Surely there's a EuroCyberguys out there somewhere???
