MySQL Connector problem - Malformed packet

I am trying to add a DSN using the MySQL Connector. After entering the Server, User and Password no databases are listed in the dropdown. On hitting test I receive an error:-

Connect Failed

[MySQL][ODBC 5.5(w) Driver]Malformed Packet.

If I purposely enter an incorrect user or password I get an 'Access denied' message so I know some communication/authentication is happening before this error.

Googled to death and can't find any similar problem.

Server is:-

5.1.47-enterprise-commercial-pro

I have tried 3 versions of Connector as below:-

mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.13-winx64

mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.6-winx64

mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.6-win32

Any help appreciated.

Chris
