• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

I believe that's a software-related error. You didn't say which software you're using to program the radio with? Also, which radio cable are you using?

Some people confuse the software. For example, the XTS3000 software will NOT program the XTS5000 yet, numerous users have tried.

The proper software is Astro25 CPS for portable, and I think the latest revision is R20.01.00? Also, you will need a programming cable that is compatible with the XTS5000; the cable being another issue as some users think a single cable will work across the entire family of radios.

Finally, even if you do have the correct software and the correct cable, the software must be the same revision, or newer, than the software last used to program the radio. Therefore, if your CPS is older than the software last used to program the radio with, it will not work.

Check those things out and ensure it all adds up, and see if that troubleshoots the issue.

Excellent! Glad a solution was found. The XTS3000 cable will not work with the XTS5000 radio, so that's likely the issue.

Have a great day.
