Are you running the latest daily build of chirp? 
  
Also hold down the 3 button while turning on the radio and get
the firmware version… 
  
It will be BFB###

I thought so myself, but it is having problems with the
"E" model and is not connecting. The nice new case looks stronger,
harder plastic and a shinny metal front. Just will not connect. Very
frustrating. I use it for work and ham both, just love it.

Alan,  
All cables for the UV5R, RE, RA, R+ etc are all compatible.  
CHIRP will also work with the entire series of UV5R.

My question is, with all the different models. Just what is the
difference if any between model a-b-c- and model E for instance. My model
"E" will not work with my plain UV-5R.   
The dealer I bought it from is saying that I need a cable specific
for this model.   
    Is
this untrue? Is there a difference that demands another cable? If so what newer
model should I get as I try to return the two I bought for a friend and myself.   
    
Very Disappointed   
Thanks   
Alan
