First time radio owner, just getting started.

Unable to download/clone from the radio to laptop.  Programming cable
flashes red & green 3 times when plugging in.  Upon Request download there
is a brief wait, then the error message is thrown.

*Error message*
"An error has occurred. Radio did not respond".
(debug.log file attached)

Followed steps (message prompt) from CHIRP app

Searched Wiki links
