Tony,
Are you putting short wave  channels in your radio ?

If you are lucky you will get a proper PL2303 chip in your cable. 
I have two other Chinese hand helds the Wouxun KG-UV6D2
and the KGUV6D that came with the same cable the Baofeng
uses. So I had a cable to play with because they all worked.
I cut into the chip holder carefully and if one were to get a cable
with a counterfeit chip a person hand with soldering equipment 
could order a new chip for a couple bucks. Or order the entire
board with USB B connector and then solder pads for your cable.
I know this may be a bit off topic but you have some good alternatives
to buying the entire cable. And the PL2303 chips of today are flat
surface mount with about 20 pins on each side. Some fine solder wick and 
a 10 watt iron would remove those.

    I want to follow up on this thread I started. After trying to
    trim the orginal connector on the cable I had and trying it
    again, it failed.

    I did order a new cable which had on it the Baofeng name. It
    showed up Friday and last night I tried it.

    The cable worked with no problem what so ever. Which means the
    other cable I bought was bad. It was not the connector but the
    cable itself.

    Now that I have a good working cable I have been able to
    download from the radio and also upload to it with no problem.

    Chrip worked fine and I have already added some 70+ channels to
    my new UV-5R+.
