The cable and driver that came with my two pack UV-5R Radios did not
work. Checked out a YouTube video (David Casler AD#37) I got this RED CABLE and downloaded the driver, PERFECT! So easy with the good stuff, this cable, the driver and Chirp.

Just got a radio about a week ago, the cable just would NOT work no matter what I did. Was watching a YouTube video by a KA0 gent who HIGHLY suggested THIS cable, figured I'd give it a try, heck couldn't prog the radio anyway, it arrived in three days (KUDOS), downloaded the drivers, and was up & running in 10 minutes! Oh, & BTW, now the radio's JUNKY cable, works (JUNK DRAW candidate!), Like this one MUCH more!

Just wanted to say thanks for the super fast delivery of the subject cable on 2-12-2020.
I had an old black cable I used to program this UVD1P a few years ago and it worked ok. Got another UVD1P recently and using the same old black cable now, it kept saying "can't read from radio", "can't find radio". Don't know what happened? Same computer, same program, same radio!
Plugged in this red cable, it loaded the driver and worked perfectly on my Widows 7 laptop. I downloaded from the existing radio and then uploaded into the new (backup) one.
Black cable went right in the trash.

I had the old "black" cable. Windows 10 wouldnt see it. Got this one and installed driver. All works fine now.

Worked With Baofeng UV-82HP & BF-F8HP By Guest
Used it with CHIRP with both of my Baofeng radios UV-82HP & BF-F8HP with no issues. Would most definitely buy this cable again.

For $10 more get the RT Systems cable and programming software! It is the best choice you will make. The (free) software is not able to pull or even copy and paste CSV files, nor repeaterbook info. this cable is not plug and play, you have to load the drivers, and you "may" have to do a bit of extra setup configuring. Will it work once you get it setup, yes, but typing in all of your repeaters manually is a pain, all the software I have seen in the last 7+ years can pull straight from repeaterbook, and CSV files.

Not FTDI, still requires drivers By John
I bought this off a recommendation of a friend and I liked the red color. I assumed it was using a chipset that windows had drivers for, but it requires you to download the drivers from here. If I had known that, I would have not gotten it.

WXUSB Cable by W4SGP By Guest
Had an older WXUSB cable that I could not get to work with current Windows software. Purchased this one April 10, received on April 13, 2017, I downloaded the driver on this page and the software under Software Downloads below for the KG-UV6D. Plugged the cable in to the radio, checked the Com port in the software and uploaded the phone on the first attempt. Have loaded all nearby repeaters. Works great. Would recommend for the Wouxon as it takes too long to enter manually through the keypad. Only suggestion would be to include short printed instructions on downloading the driver and software which I had to search for on this site. Five star even without the instructions.

Downloaded the Driver listed above in the downloads. Ran the Powerwerx software, read/write no problems.

Purchased this cable so I wouldn't have to pay $40 for the software and cable for my kg-uv3x. I downloaded the software from this site and the driver and would not work on my radio. So I purchased the $40 software and cable and worked great. Spend the few extra $'s and get the proper software and cable.
