The UV-5(R) uses a different programming cable. It most likely
manufactured with a counterfeit Prolific USB-to-Serial chip and the
installed device driver (assuming you are using Windows) is in
compatible with counterfeit chips (all Prolific device drivers since
about 2008 are). This is the #1 cause of problems, anyway.
