I'm using Chirp Daily Build 20150102.  All guidance will be much appreciated... especially since I promised to deliver the radio tomorrow!

Hi Richard,

Since the programming cable already works with your radio, the driver
and programming cable must be OK. This means the problem is that you
are not getting the plug fully engaged in the radio.
