I bought a straight USB to 6 pin cable from Hong Kong and there is no driver disk included with it. Windows is not finding a driver.

Can anyone recommend a link for a driver that will work with it? A buddy who bought a serial cable got a disk with a driver. Will that work?

I have an FT-7800, I'm not sure if they are exactly the same in terms of drivers, but you need some programming software.  I use the ADMS software from Yaesu, but there may be 3rd party software (such as the 3rd party software for the VX-5).  Try googling FT-8800 software and see what comes up.  Sorry if I'm not much of help.  Good luck!

Yes, the FTB8800 mention is programming software. Just cant seem to get the radio and the computer talking yet.

Thank you for the tip.

I posted this same question on a yahoo group devoted to 8800s and someone sent me a driver he had received with his cable purchase. It worked so if your link doesnt, post here and I will see about sending it to you.

I have bought the same cable from eBay and dowloaded the driver - all was ok but at this point, after the upgrades, the site is down:

Can someone send or post these drivers?

Thanks in advance
