I am trying to program my radioshack pro-652 using the Win500 software. I have already bought a license. When I try to use the win500.exe I get this FTDI driver error. Now when I use win500_com.exe and try to download whats already on the scanner now, it puts the scanner in the cloning mode but then win500 gives me this error about timing out. Can anyone help with with programming my scanner.

Note that the clone message on the scanner displays once a cable is plugged into its PC/IF jack. The USB end of the cable can go to space. The key to making this work is installing the correct driver for the cable (and having the correct cable). As stated, you don't need the pigtail. With the USB cable plugged in to the PC and recognized in Device Manager, WIN500 should now also find it.

Here is the cable I am using I have tried charging the drivers but the computer doesn't like to change them because it says it already has the best one for it.

The latest greatest driver that windows finds is not always the one needed. Take a close look at the error message from your 1st post. You may need to wrangle your pc into submission..
Mine is working with this version.

Check the driver tab. Without knowing the version you have installed, you may need to remove/uninstall it and perhaps a fresh download/install of the driver is needed.. IDK
You can find the download in the above link if necessary.

I have run into a situation before where there are several drivers loaded. What I had to do is uninstall drivers and reboot until no drivers were found for the device. Then install only the one it wants.
