Hello,

Please help, I am trying to connect my BCT15 to my laptop using the front output and my serial port on the laptop using the uniden cable supplied.

No software will recognize it, what are the steps to take. It cant find it on any COM ports???

Thanks

What program are you using to access the radio?
Make sure the program is trying to utilize the same port.
Also make sure that port you are using is actually turned on, some laptops turn off ports to save on power.

If you goto Control Panel-Device Manager, when you open it up under "Ports" it should list the correct COM ports installed on your computer. If you don't see any and have a physical one installed in your computers, its probably disabled in the bios. If you are using a USB-Serial converter then you just have to install drivers for it.
