When programing with computer radio will not scan

Recommend using a program called 'Chirp' (free internet download) to program your radio. Ensure the fields are populated correctly.
Upload the file, let the radio program, and then turn radio off and remove the cable. Try the scan function once you turn the radio back on.

These types of radios are sensitive to programming errors.

Cloning CS-F50 using usb port

Do you have a USB programming cable for the radio? If not, get a USB to serial adapter and plug between the computer USB and serial programming cable. Adapter driver will help with the interface.

Uv-5ra programming

The problem I found with the programming software was with the driver that is included with the software. Google Baofeng software driver and follow the instructions on how to load as well as how to remove the non-working driver. If you don't remove the original driver, windows will revert back to the original instead of using the new driver. Good Luck!

I can't upload the presets for bf-888s even with the software disk provided. Need datiled instruction.

The usual problem is an incorrect driver for the usb/serial chip in the connecting cable. Windows installs the latest driver but clone chips need an older version. There's good advice on these pages:

Channeling option/procedure

Wow, almost no information to help you. How new is the software? It could already be out of date because Motorola wants you upgrading about every six months. OEM cable? USB? Check your USB drivers. Using windows 7 or 8? Good luck with that! I always go back to XP to program. It works every time. Please re post what issue you actually have in detail.

Why do i get an error window when i press read on the program for the radio????

If the interface cable has a serial port connector, and you need to use a USB --> Serial Port adapter to connect to your computer; it may be the source of the problem. The cheaper USB --> Serial adapters have issues with timings that the serial port protocols rely on. You may have luck by reducing the speed of the serial port to something like 19200, 14400, 9600, 4800 or even as low as 2400 baud. Make sure that the adapter name (COM1, AUX1, COM2, AUX2 , etc.) is the SAME one you're telling the program to use to access the radio's memory and the port's parity, number of stop bits and error checking type match the program.

Additionally, different radio manufacturers use different methods to set the radio's memory up to be read and / or written. Make sure the radio is ready to be read and the program is trying to read - not write (and vice versa).

If you're still having issues, please reply and provide the radio brand and model, interface cables and adapters, and program software and computer Operating System.

GP300 Radios

I recommend you **** can the USB cable and get a RIB and Rib cable. The GP300 Motorola software is available online for free (I can give you the web page address) and works just like the real Motorola software. I have programmed at least 20 GP300s with it with no issues. A RIB is the only way to go. Everyone has nothing but trouble with USB cables. Particularly with newer radios like the CP200.
