Question UV5R Programming problems

Hi there, I am new here and really hoping someone can help. I am not new to programming and been doing it for a bit now. I have a UV5R, 2 RMV25, 1 Icom F521 and a few kenwood radios. my problem is the same on all of them. I used to be able to program any of them and now when I click "read from radio" the radio goes into programming mode and then i get this communication error. the radio proceeds to reset after i hit ok on the error. I used to have it working and now none of them will program. any clue as to why would be a really big help. THANK YOU very much.

ps. hopefully i got this in the right post. if not i could definitely use some more knowledge. thank you again

If you are using a USB programming cable and Windows, the compatible device driver for the chip in the programing cable was most likely updated to an incompatible device driver. Follow these instructions to verify if you have a compatible device driver installed or not, and to downgrade to a compatible one if you need to.
