CHIRP worked fine on my 7800, and I have a cable that goes from the 6 way din to USB.

I think you need a different cable. It sounds like you are trying to 
feed USB to the radio. The radio doesn't have USB.
I use a USB to RS-232 serial dongle then the radio cable converts 
RS-232 to TTL.

Also be aware that Chirp does not work properly with the FT-7800R.
Some of the tone modes that the radio has are not supported in Chirp.
