     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
