Default TK-3180 -K2 Unable Programming

Hello all,
I need you help, please.
Recently I purchased a lot of radios TK-3180-K2
I've been trying to use KPG-96D, KPG-92D, KPG-89D to program the radio, however I keep getting this message when attempting to read/write to the radio "Check Model Name and Market Code"
I have no experience with this radio model, so I really need your help.
Attached a picture with a model and others informations.
Thank you in advanced help.

Looks like it has MPT trunking firmware. There is specific software you need to use. Off the top of my head I can not remember what it is. You maybe able to update the firmware to conventional/LTR with the correct firmware file and upload it using FPRO software, then you should be able to use one of the listed software packages to program.

I have a TK-8180-k2(mobile version of the TK-3180) but I have not programmed it in a long time and can not remember all the specifics.

mmckenna or kd4efm can likely provide better information than I have.

KPG-96DN is the programming software for MPT TK-x180 radios. Version 3.30 is the latest, released in November of 2012.

If it is still giving you the "Check Model Name and Market Code" pop up, then you need to take a close look at the radios as well as your activation key for the programming software.
Radios have a market code, and will require programming software with the same market code. If the radios you have came from the North American market, they'll have the K in the model number, like in the photo (not sure if that is one of your radios or a photo from somewhere else).
Same goes for the programming software, it'll need to be activated with a key that starts with K44…….

Is a real picture of the my radio.
I receive a information today, about Kenwood customers, inform about i need buy a KPG-89DK.
I'm stressed because every time I look for information, I get a different one. I can not find the KPG-89DK to download and test here.
I search a programming software KPG-96DN in web sites.
I am sorry.
Thank you mmckenna and kayn1n32008

You could contact a Kenwood dealer in the United States.
