When you upload and download an img, all the settings are included. So
you reset the radio, then put everything back just how it was before
(plus your changes).

Sounds like
1. Your driver isn't detecting the cable, and therefore not
enumerating a COM port.
2. This bug means you don't see an error message for the above condition:

Upgrade to the latest development build and I suspect you will see an
error about not finding any COM ports. Try it and report back:
