Hello - please help,

I try to use CHIRP to program a new Baofeng BF-F8HP and I receive this
"This radio's driver is experimental. Do you want to proceed?"
"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

I am using this cable:
BTECH PC03 FTDI Genuine USB Programming Cable
I am programming this radio:
BaoFeng BF-F8HP (UV-5R 3rd Gen) 8-Watt Dual Band Two-Way Radio (136-174Mhz
VHF & 400-520Mhz UHF)

I've used CHIRP before to program 4 UV5R radios with a different cable.

What is wrong?
How can I use CHIRP?

Thank you,
