Some folks have to trim off some of the plastic allowing the connectors to go in further.

  Thanks for reply. 



  I've pushed the cable in at full-strength (into the UV-5R). When I got those results.

    Push the cable in VERY firmly, and try again.

      I'm trying to connect to a UV-5R using a USB cable that was bought some time (maybe 5-10 years) ago, using chirpw on ubuntu 16.04.



      The tty port is found when I plug it in:

      $ dmesg | grep tty
      [ 7527.188154] usb 1-2: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
      [ 7548.490452] pl2303 ttyUSB0: pl2303 converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0


      $ la /dev/ttyU*
      crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Feb 17 13:49 /dev/ttyUSB0


      When I start chirpw and try to download from radio, the error is not consistent, it depends on whether I've tried it before or not. Sometimes I get the error: 

      [Errno 16] could not open port /dev/ttyUSB0: 

      [Errno 16] Device or resource busy: '/dev/ttyUSB0'


      and /dev/ttyUSB0 disappears.


      Another time after I unplugged and replugged the USB cable and restarted chirpw, /dev/ttyUSB0 reappears and when I try to download from radio I get:
      [Errno 5] could not open port /dev/ttyUSB0: 

      [Errno 5] Input/output error: '/dev/ttyUSB0'


      Any advice on how to troubleshoot this?



      Kheong.
