Attempting an upload when download is not working is a very bad idea.
Always get a clean download before attempting an upload. Luckily the
Yaesu radios will just display "clone error" in the case of a bad
upload, so if you do try this in my experience it doesn't cause any
permanent damage.

I've encountered two different types of FT-60 cables and I can't tell
the difference. One works flawlessly every time. The other requires a
bit of lateral pressure to make electrical contact in the connector.
Try this.
