not sure if I am in the right place, but can anyone help with a programming issue .
I have a CDM 1550. I can read the radio but that is all I can do.
It does not give me an option for programming in channels and I do not and have not been able to find directions on programming.

thanx for the information. Also I just purchased a programming cable to do this, do I need a RIB for this or could that be why it is not working.

You do need a cable with a RIB interface (like the Internal RIB mentioned in the service manual). You also need a computer capable of running true DOS and not Windows "DOS like interface". This is why programming Moto radios is so tricky: you need to have just the right setup or you could accidentally brick your radio.
I hope you have also spent time at Batlabs reading up on the valuable info they have. :)
