What is often over looked if the Driver does Not follow the cable. 
It is assigned to the port that the cable is attached.

If you move your cable to another USB port, the newest driver is loaded and the loading of the proper driver starts all over again. 
(unless you disconnect your PC from the internet)

Hang in there . . .

To program my radios, I had to find the right COM PORT on my computer.  Once I got it right, it all worked fine.

>     Thanks.  You were right, I am using Windows XP and got CHIRP to open.  I had checked cherpw, but did not recognize what popped up.  I am now trying to get my computer to recognize my Baofeng, but I think that is a hardware problem.  I'll work on it some more if I have time during the week.
