Don't import files from a different radio. They might import but might be
the wrong format. I am thinking about the sorting thing could be as simple
as 01 instead 1 or 001. With radio software like Chirp and especially
Chirp, because it works with so  many different radios, the formats of
everything needs to be EXACT!!

Reset your radio to factory defaults. I always then program one frequency
manually so that when I download from the radio to Chirp I can see the
format the data is in.

Download the now defaulted radio to a file. Edit this file to upload back
to the radio.
