5.0 out of 5 stars G6LEB
The supplied disk may not contain the best drivers for your particular platform - they seemed very old. Try loading the drivers from the disk first, but if you get an error then search the web or go to the suppliers website for the latest version and try again (don't forget to run the uninstall of the old driver first or it could start to get a bit messy)...

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality
This was the second cable from M&S, replacing an intial faulty cable. The PC would still not recognise this cable despite being tested on 3 different machines. I replaced this cable with one from a different source that worked first time and has been faultless ever since.

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/ Wouxun UVd1P/ UV6D (Electronics)
The supplied disk may not contain the best drivers for your particular platform - they seemed very old. Try loading the drivers from the disk first, but if you get an error then search the web or go to the suppliers website for the latest version and try again (don't forget to run the uninstall of the old driver first or it could start to get a bit messy).

Next, have a look at the port number that Windows has assigned to it by going START>SETTINGS>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Ports (COM&LPT). You may see that it has been assigned a high port number. The Boefeng UV-5R software only goes up to COM8, so you may have to right click the driver, go to advanced, and re-assign a port number that the software can access.

Works well after reviewing the above. Excellent delivery from supplier. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars programming cable, 7 Jan 2013

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/ Wouxun UVd1P/ UV6D (Electronics)
I ordered this cable to go with my new radio, it arrived very quickly considering it was the Christmas period. I installed the software and everything worded as it should but better still I found that I can also program my 20 year old Kenwood with the same cable and software Bonus. 10 out of 10 to m/s I will be more than happy to deal with them again

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/ Wouxun UVd1P/ UV6D (Electronics)
The cable comes with a mini cd but no instructions. Various other reviews say it is easy to impossible to install, it did not install on my PC running Win7. Three days later I had left it plugged into a USB socket when it suddenly started installing again this time successfully. So keep trying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product for the price, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/ Wouxun UVd1P/ UV6D (Electronics)
although im having a problem programming my radio the cable is cheap, after buying the cable and trying to program my BF-888s im having major problems in reading from the radio or writing to it.

the UV-5R cable is apparently supposed to program the BF-888s i cant get it working. This is not the fault of the cable i dont think since there is a lot of known issues trying to program the 888s series.

the cable could be at fault but its more than likely the well known issue with BF-888s programming.

Did not use the CD that came with the cable. Using Windows 7 the drivers were installed automatically when the USB was plugged in (radio off) - It created Prolific USB-to-Serial Port on COM3. Downloaded CHIRP open-source tool and selected to "download from Radio" as I have already added some channels directly on the radio without USB. I Followed the instructions to turn the radio on and it downloaded the image. I cleaned them up, named them and sent it back.

Got this ages ago, and forgot to put up a feedback, I will be using this Seller again as I need some more bits, and they sent it in good sturdy packaging and very fast, so look out for my order, Use This Seller, what they say is what they do, and do it well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pricey, 19 Mar 2014

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/ Wouxun UVd1P/ UV6D (Electronics)
This is essential for programming the radio.
But, it's price is ludicrous at seven quid compared to the cheapness of the radio at £30.
