[chirp_users] Baofeng cable

Why are you guys repeating the same thing over and over without actually offering any assistance??

 

What you said is all true however first you need to get Windows to recognize the cable.  

 

…..Which only requires that you plug it in.  No drivers required on any version of windows.

 

Rick is not even at that point yet!  

 

Once you can see it in device manager you can then load the OLD (2007) drivers (below) and it will work perfect.

 

Here is the link to the drivers again: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/188372/prolific.driver/PL2303.332102.zip

If the cable that is being used has a cloned or counterfeit Prolific chip, Windows will load the latest Prolific driver.
That driver will recognize the counterfeit chip and will Fail.
This is by design to discourage counterfeiters. The only way to get around it is to do what Jim suggested.
Load a backdated driver. Preferably Win7 Prolific 3.2.0.0 or XP Prolific 2.0.2.1.

The needed drivers and explanation can be found at http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php
Read carefully FAQ 1 and 2 at the bottom of the page also.

I hope this assists.

Any version of Windows will recognize the cable.

 

You don’t need drivers.

Tony, you're not helping!

Until the older driver is installed properly, it won't recognize the cable.

Unless every step is followed EXACTLY, the older driver won't be installed.

Take it from someone who was convinced that I had followed every direction, several times.

When you finally do it right, it will work.

He’s not even at the point where drivers are needed. 

 

He can’t even get Windows to recognize the cable.

 

Repeating “Read the instructions”  over and over without offering any actual advice is a waste of everybody’s time.

 

C’mon…

Follow the instructions in the guide step by step to select it. If you don't select it as shown in the guide, Windows will continue to use the latest driver and the programming cable will continue to fail to function properly.
