I am trying to program my XTS3000R, I have the RKN4105A programming cable, but I need the drivers for the cable, can anyone help, or point me in the right direction??

That is the incorrect cable for the XTS3000. You have a cable for an XTS5000/XTS2500 and it won't work for that model radio.

You need a RIB box and the RKN4035 cable.

Ahh, I was told by our radio tech at work that it doesn't need a rib box. I will have to do some more interrogation.

Totally different cables and programming protocol. You can find ribless cables on ebay but you could end up with a brick if something happens during the programming process.

I hate to tell you this but I don't beleive the XTS3000 CPS supports USB. And it may not support that cable even if it has both the serial db9 and USB. You may be able to get a copy of an aftermarket cables driver but I have never tried that. I have the RKN4106 DB9 only and it only works with the XTS2500 & XTS5000 . I wish it would work with older stuff to instead of having to carry a rib cable for the HT1000,JT1000,and MTS radios. Mother M has a way of making you buy a cable for every radio. I wish they also would have included the XTS3000 in with the XTS2500/5000 CPS there are alot of the 3000's around.

I have an xts3000 cable but need an xts5000 cable if you'd like to trade. PM me if necessary.
