When connected to the computer you must read from the radio first then you
can program it and then send it back to the radio.

I have programed many other radios and there has been a menu setting to
get into program mode. I have connected my UV-5r to the computer and
selected the correct Comm Port, nothing. What do i have to do to program
this radio?

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.
