Here is how delete your old ports that are left over from other adapters. 
Click Start
Click Run
Type cmd.exe in the textbox and click OK
Type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and hit ENTER
Type cd\windows\system32 and hit ENTER
Type start devmgmt.msc and hit ENTER
When the device manager opens, click the View menu

Click on the + sign next to the Ports to see the full list of Com ports being used

I had no problems connecting until I went to Windows 8 Now when I use the cables and start with download from radio the box for the Com port does not comes up. Nothing happens. I check device manager and it shows an exclamation mark in the com port setting.  Any suggestions
