No, those are USB-to-serial adapters.

They're clearly connected and identified by the OS.  Have you tried 
CHIRP against both of them?

For what it's worth, all of the Icom radios are fully remotely 
addressable.  That means you plug in the radio and CHIRP does the rest. 
  It can place the radio into clone mode in both directions and handle 
multiple clone upload/download operations without you ever touching the 
radio.  They don't make something to compete with the 8900, but I just 
thought I'd point that out.
