Your problem is most likely a counterfeit Prolific chip in the
cable. Go to www.miklor.com and they tell you how to install a legacy
driver for the chip which will recognize the radio with your computer
attached. You can also go into your operating system and tell it not to
automatically update that particular driver when new versions of the
operating system are installed. Chris Knowles, N1CAK
