Hi, I am not sure exactly what version two-way radio you actually have, however there are not many, that actually allow full control via the USB port. usually all that one can do, is exactly what you have discovered. Also sometimes you have two USB cables one for "Programming" IE: Altering channel settings etc, and one for Charging and File copying etc will have to find this out too.
Of course as stated this depends on the Radio model ,and software that's being used to control it.
You will have to obtain a user manual for your set, your exact make and model as settings differ among sets, and this is the only place that there is a compilation of data to do with your unit.
For your convenience i have included a link to Motorola support, this is the best place to seek assistance, for your manuals and advice.

If it is capable, of scanning and setting frequencies, then you usually have a Scanning and settings controller program, that allows you to step up and down in specific increments, i must say though, that only pretty sophisticated sets have a feature like this, as with any transceiver, Both, the transmit & receive frequencies must be controlled and somewhat interlocked...

My Motorola Q wont turn on!? HELP ME PLZZ

You need to re-flash your phone. You need to download a program called RSD Lite, the Motorola USB handset driver package, and the OS ROM for your Q. You can google the first two files and the OS you should be able to get from your service provider.

Now, install these programs, connect your phone to the computer, and run RSD Lite. Click on the "..." button and select the ROM file you downloaded. Click Start and it should re-flash the phone. You will lose all saved data, but at least your phone will be working.

I don'tknow how to use the satellite radio...

Got this off the crutchfiel web site.

Item #700XMSON1 $129.98 This XM Direct 2 package includes everything you need to add XM Satellite Radio to your compatible Sony receiver: an XM Mini-Tuner, a CNP2000UC universal adapter, and a Sony connector cable. The Mini-Tuner connects to the universal adapter, then you use the connector cable to hook up the adapter to your Sony receiver.
Use your home computer to program the universal adapter for your Sony receiver — you can reprogram this adapter to work with another brand in the future. Once connected, you'll be able to change channels and see programming information on your stereo's display. You can also use the included XM Mini-Tuner with your XM-ready home receiver or in another vehicle with a compatible dock.
A computer running Windows XP and Internet Explorer is required. The unit is not compatible with Windows Vista.
Note: A subscription to XM is also required — learn about XM's programming. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Portable reception may vary by location. If you have questions about the proposed XM/SIRIUS merger, read the XM Customer Promise. To view this file, you will need the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader.

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.

I have a motorola XTS2500I Digital radio through my fire dept. I have the software to program the radios but my problem is that the computer can't read the radio. I have tried all the USB ports with the...

The XTS Series of radios are very professional - the person responsible for programming your "Fire Radios" was obviously successful - or you wouldn't have one assigned to you. My advice is that you get that person to make the changes you are looking to make. I suspect your version of software is older than the version currently in the radio - and if you had a real reason to have this software, you would have a valid subscription - and hence, the most up-to-date version. Just exactly what are you trying to change on your radio? Are they authorized changes?

Those are the main questions I would be posing.....
