Make sure you have the correct comm port selected in the software that you are using. That is, the USB software will create a virtual comm port and you need to make sure that it is the one that you have selected in whatever program you are using. Use Device Manager, look at the USB section and see what the USB adapter has selected for the Comm Port number.

I've never had to touch any of those. The most I've ever done is change the comm port number. Another thought. Have you checked to see if you have the lastest drivers for the USB adapter? And what software are you using?

I use Win7, 64bit, and the first time I try to connect UASD to the radio after starting the program, it gives me that communication error, but it works the next time I try it, and continues to work.

Also, I found that the latest driver from Prolific's site does not work at all for me. I use an older version from the site of the cable manufacturer - iocrest. My cable came from Monoprice.com, instead of the USB-1 cable from Uniden, which may use a slightly different version of the chip.

Details can be found in my posts of the past couple of weeks.
