Try the VX-5 Commander software at www.kc8unj.com. It is free like CHIRP, although both take donations.  His programs are very good.  If one way does not work, he might have an 'alternate write' method, as he does for some other Yaesu products.  He covers several Yaesu handhelds and some Wouxun, also.

I am actually having the same issue ( pc version)   I can download from radio no issue,  but then editing , and save file ( only as csv file).  but no time does it ever let me select the upload to radio option, as it is grayed out
