1. Make sure you have a compatible driver installed. Programming cables
with Prolific chips almost always require you to use an older or patched
driver to be compatible.

Windows XP: V2.0.2.1
Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1: V3.2.0.0


Mac OS X

Compatible drivers are often already installed. Give CHIRP Live CD a try
(you can "burn" it to a USB flash drive). Since the OS is Xubuntu Linux, if
this works with your programming cable and Windows or OS X doesn't work,
you have at least determined the problem is not your programming cable or

2. Make sure the cable is fully plugged into the radio. This trips up a lot
of owners of the UV-5R (and variants like the GT-3).
