I used to be able to have some fun with chirp but I've not been able to interact with my radios (baofeng UV-5RE Plus and UV-82HP) since getting a new computer.  On an older computer and with an older cable I could access my UV-5RE fine but now I can’t get it to recognize anything.

Hi Alan,

It seems to me you don't have a compatible device driver installed.
You would not select anything with Bluetooth.
