If you are using the RS cable, and plugging the stereo plug into the headphone, it won't work. If you are using the cable that came with the scanner, you will need a DB-9 connection on the PC. If you bought the Uniden USB-1 cable, you will just need to plug it into a USB port on the computer.
As posted, the cable that came with the software from RS only works on scanners like the Pro-106/197.
This is why the computer doesn't recognize the scanner.
