[chirp_users] CHIRP DOWNLOAD problems

Fri Oct 27 13:07:09 PDT 2017

I downloaded CHIRP from the Web Site to WD 10 and after the down load was
completed there was no sign of a CHIRP shortcut on my desk top. 

Went to C: (x86) CHIRP and found shortcut. I dragged the shortcut to
Desktop. I clicked on the CHIRP ICON and Chirp loaded. 

I then installed the Baofeng USB Programming Cable for Baofeng Two way Radio
UV-5R, BF-888S,BF-F8+ With Driver CD to my BF-F8HP Radio. 

I attempted to install the Driver CD and found it corrupted. 

I thought that my windows 10 had the most up to date USB Driver and I would
not need the one that came with the Programing Cable. I may have been wrong
and do need a special Driver. 

I than plugged the programing Cable in to the USB Port and then the Radio,
turned the Radio on, started CHIRP, clicked the Radio Menu, input vendor
info, started download.


Due to the fact that the manufacturer continues to release new versions of
the firmware with obscure and hard-to-track changes, this driver may not
work with your device. Thus far and to the best knowledge of the author, no
UV-5R radios have been harmed by using CHIRP. However, proceed at your own

Typed USB in port assignment  box and tried again with the following

Do I need a special USB Driver?

Can anyone help me with this problem?


Thanks in advance,
