It sounds right... are you sure this cable works?  I know you said it's 
FTDI based but there have been counterfit versions of those too.  If you 
go into the Control Panel --> System --> Device Manager   Does the 
serial port show up ok without any warning icons, etc?

I think chirp already knows what the serial port needs to be configured for.

Naw, I'm sure things will work ok, we're just missing something simple.  
Speaking of Baofeng, push the connector into the radio REALLY hard (I 
mean HARD) and give it a try again.  That's a very common problem with 
cheap cables.

This could be a bad cable.  I think you can connect the TX to RX and 
using a program like Hyperterminal, type in characters and see if you 
see them back.  This is an easy way to see if things aren't working right
