I just went through that with 2 computers, one new and one upgraded to Windows 8. On the upgrade, it had the 1.7 drivers and worked fine prior to upgrade.
After the upgrade and I had to uninstall the drivers and install the 1.5 version. Everything worked without trouble after that.
Do an uninstall of everything you have and install the 1.5. If you still have trouble, go to driver properties and click on update driver. Instead of searching, click browse my computer and then pick from a list.
PM me if you have more issues.

I just converted to Windows 8 for better or worse. As best as I can tell all three of the USB-1 cables I have got the HXA chipset, which isn't playing nice with Windows 8.
Also, in anticipation of finding the correct cable, which is the better driver to use? On the Uniden Wiki, it has a link to download the1.5.0 driver installer, but on Prolific's site they have a 1.7.0 driver installer.
