RT systems makes great programming software, yes not "freeware" but it works and also ties to the ARRL Repeater cd and Rfinder seamlessly.
I use several of their discs and have not had any problems.

menu "Alternative Write Strategy." Now because of my memory loss that could
have been another program like VX5 Commander but still it illustrates that in 
some cases the software needed an alternative method to write to the VX5. 
Sorry I can't help more, maybe try VX5 Commander, I think you can use it for
free for 15 days.

     I have been trying to program a VX5R with no success, I have tried 2 different types of USB cables and 2 different types of programs, chirp being one of them.
     I am able to read from the radio but when I go to write to the radio I get a comm error message.
     Has anyone else run into this problem?
