Hi Phil,

Are you using a traditional serial port for your programming cable or a USB
programming cable? If USB, have you used it with other radios or is this
the first time? Many USB cables have a USB-to-serial chip in them that
requires that you install an older driver for it to work. Visit the
miklor.com website to find out how to get the correct drive and install it.

Also, a common issue for the UV-5R is that the user is fooled into thinking
that the cable is fully plugged in when it isn't. Give it an extra wiggle
and push to make sure it is all the way in. I'm not kidding, this is a very
common problem.
