Post moved to Uniden forum.

Please pick a more appropriate forum for your thread next time. Finding a cable for your scanner really isn't an appropriate topic for the Community Announcements forum.

Thanks.

We also have a few more issues and resolutions documented at the bottom of this article from our wiki...

And finally you must set the port up on the scanner itself. This page from the Freescan user guide tells you about this, using the menus...

Unfortunately Win8 makes it a royal pain in the butt with drivers for USB cables. As I just lost my desktop and likely to have to go through this same pain, I'm not looking forward to this...HTH...Mike

I don't know if you're willing to go this route but this site offers either Windows 7 or 8: Trading Computers
