Hi,

I have done this before but its been a while.

I have the USB cable plugged into the MIC plug on the radio.
Software loaded (Have tried Chirp, and FTB7800 with same result), and in download mode.
Turn on Radio using the Mhz and power button.
Turn to Clone.
Pressed Band Set button.

When I press the V/M MW button to TX the data to the computer the TX message comes on for about 1 second, then says "ERROR".

Its like the radio is not recognizing the USB cord, because the same results happen when I unplug the cord from the MIC jack.

Any ideas?   Driver issue with Prolific driver (they are a pain with the BaoFeng radios)??

thanks.

DOH!   Roll Eyes

I think I figured it out.  I put in the programming cable my FT-1802.  the FT-7800 is different.

thanks

Don't feel too bad, I've done the same thing with a 7900 and the cable for a 1802.

Would it kill the manufacturers to standardize the method of programming their radios?
