F50V / F60V software and firmware
Current radios use CS-F50V MM v3.1.1 software and FL3060A v3.6.2 firmware.
Current Software version: 3.1.1
Current Firmware version: 3.6.2
CS-F50V MM v3.1.1 should read all of the earlier V models.
I've had some non-V F50's that needed other versions. There is a bit of trial and error needed.
The current versions are:
Clone Software 2.1. (MDC)
Adjust Software 2.0 (MDC)
Note: Newer MDC cloning software has the same features as earlier, non-MDC cloning software and can be used for non-MDC operation in older radios.

Are you sure they're V's? (Model number on the tag and a silver bezel)
The bad news: Older F50 radios used in long term rough service with remote speaker/mics attached had an issue with stress breaking the solder joints between the side connector board and the main board. Some read/write fine, some have to be "Englished" forwards or backwards while programming (flex the side connector and hold your breath while reading/writing), and some just won't program without repair. If you are either skilled or fearless it is not difficult. Since Osaka changed that process four or five years ago, I haven't seen this issue with any of the V radios, but it is not impossible.
The good news is that is the only mechanical issue with the 50-series chassis series. I've worn the same non-V F50 daily since 2007. Only the battery, antenna and a couple knobs are not original.
