HI Christy,
I remember having a simlar problem with my Garmin GPS when I first got it and was setting it up.  I called their tech service and he suggested changing ports, that sometimes, for no apparent reason a device will fail to read a port.  So, maybe, changing ports will work for you.  Also, I would try rebooting your PC as well.  
Hope this helps, Good Luck, MikeyJay, KM4FWT

 Hi, and thanks for allowing me to join the group.
I have been working on getting my CHIRP installed (and working) for several days now. Tonight, I FINALLY got everything to work, after trudging through many website, emails, and discussions.  I created a couple of channels as a test run and everything read from the radio and wrote to the radio with no problem.  I then went back into the program to start over and I got errors indicating the Port was no good.  I had not removed the cable or changed ports, or done anything differently. When I went into my Devices and Printers folder, there was a yellow warning sign stating there was a problem with the port.  But everything worked fine just seconds before that.  I'm sure I will have more questions, but after getting this far on my own, I'm at a loss, and hope to get some help.Thank you for your time, Christy KEØCJO
