No problem here on IC-880H.  Am using both speaker port and data port, AOK.

I recently aquired an 880H and have had no trouble programming it or sending
slow speed data with it?via the data port, as long as it's not in GPS mode.

I've never tried it through the speaker jack.

I have not been able to get Chirp to recognize my ID-880H using the data
port. Has anyone else got this to work or are all using the speaker jack and
a level converter? I am using one of the latest daily builds and Win7.

I am using a homebrew RS-232 cable that works fine with the Icon ID-880H
software.

Thanks

That's the correct driver for Windows XP. You need v3.2.0.0 for Vista, 7 &
8.

I know it's hard to believe that when you push one button and see one effect
that they're not related. However, it is literally not
possible* for a user application such as chirp to cause a blue-screen crash.
The blue screen is a kernel crash dump, and the drivers live in the kernel.

It's clearly CHIRP doing something (legitimate) that causes the driver to
crash and result in the blue screen, but it's the driver's fault for doing
that. It's the entire point of a modern OS.

The reason you're not seeing this with the Baofeng software is just because
it's doing things in a slightly different order, which avoids tripping over
whatever is going wrong. In other words, luck.

The reason you're seeing this and others are not is likely related to some
_other_ driver or piece of hardware in your system that is either actually
faulty or is faulty when combined with the Prolific driver.

Unfortunately, the use of counterfeit devices in these direct-from-china
cables means that you can't use the latest version of the prolific driver,
with the latest set of bug fixes.

>?So, I would be interested in hearing if there's a solution to this

There is one sure-fire way to fix it, and that's order a cable from a
reputable manufacturer (and/or use a serial cable with a known USB-to-serial
adapter). You will have a hard time finding a reputable manufacturer for a
Baofeng cable, but you will have no problem finding one for a Kenwood radio,
and it is the same pinout.

No, it is not, should it be? 

I have tried downloading from the radio numerous times with the radio in VFO
mode, in Memory mode, in DV mode, no luck. All I have got was an error -
"Failed to communicate with the radio: Unexpected response from the radio"
message.

It works fine with the data port for me here. Is the radio in DV GPS mode/

Thanks Mike,

I have not had any issue programming with the Icom software, just Chirp.
Does the radio have to be set differently for Chirp than for the Icom 880
programming software?

My radio is set up for GPS transmissions when in DV mode, but no matter what
mode the 880 is in, Chirp does not communicate with it. I even went in and
disabled GPS and tried again, no luck.

I recently aquired an 880H and have had no trouble programming it or sending

slow speed data with it via the data port, as long as it's not in GPS mode.

I've never tried it through the speaker jack.
