The #1 cause of this issue is the device driver installed. If you have
a programming cable with a Prolific type chip (check Device Manager to
find out), then the device driver this is automatically installed by
Windows is incompatible. I will have to be downgraded to an older, but
compatible, v3.2.0.0.


The #2 cause of this issue is not getting the 2-pin plug fully
inserted into the radio.
