If someone doesn't state what they're using, be it operating system or radio, they're unlikely to get useful advice.

Instructions on fixing Windows and Mac device drivers are posted almost every day. 

Empty questions about very common problems get boring and just show that the person asking the question, in all probability, just can't be bothered to research the problem and wants someone else to fix it.

Next time I tried it I had to plug it in a couple of times before it would recognize it (I did get it to work). Fast forward to Dec I've plugged in numerous time and will not recognize radio. Obviously its either cable or maybe in the radio. How to I tell which? without buying a new cable. 73 Alan
