Well, perhaps. I've had more than one bad one. Just for kicks, maybe try


The demo will let you download the radio (but not upload). Maybe just
for another data point, see if that one works. If it does, then we can
diagnose further. If it does not, I'd look at the cable.

I've not heard that, nor can I think of how it could be possible.
