I have used the Kenwood software and also Link 700 to program the D700A.  
What cable are you using?  Using a Radio Shack RS-232-C cable, this has all pins but 1 & 9 connected straight through, 1 & 9 are not used, see page 2 of the Specialized Communications manual.  Check the properties of your com port on the computer, under advanced place a check mark by "Use FIFO buffers".

For what it's worth if you accidently disconnect the serial cable while connected the D700 and serial communications is impossible and incidently always turn off the D700 when disconnecting serial cable as this will happen as well.

The only way to recover from this I have found is a total hard reset of the D700 (it's in the manual). It defaults to 9600 common parameters and you communicate again. I have also dsicovered to not waste my time by trying to increase the load speed beyond 9600 because you always wind up having to reload this beast for some reason or another and you wind up restetting back to 9600 anyway so you don't gain anything. Any ordinary 9-pin serial connector with an ordinary gender changer will work.

My 6 cents.
