The cable and disc came with the radio. And maybe on your screen it says to
upload but I only have two options highlighted Import to Radio or Download
from radio.
I will continue to play with it and I appreciate all your suggestions but
have tried them all. Being a retired engineer I am not about to let a man
made object get the best of me.
