Unless you are using an all-in-one cable, you can't be using the same
cable. The MP-300 uses a single TRS plug for programming. The other
radios you mention use a Kenwood style 2-pin plug.

This error would indicate that CHIRP is not receiving any response
from the radio. It is most likely a cable/driver problem. Does this
programming cable/driver setup work with the factory software?

Try the factory software. It it too doesn't work, that would pretty
much indicate an issue with the programming cable setup. If it does
work, then provide the MCU-Version at the bottom of the screen of the
factory software.
