At the very first time when installed the software and the driver given by the manufacturer i had some issues given some crazy comm ports like 35 and the Baofeng UV-B6 went really hot after a while. My guess, something accidentally went wrong at the given processing time. Unplugged the UV-B6 and let it cool down. Fortunately works just fine! Restarted the laptot, plugged in the cable and voila! everything works great in my case at COMM PORT 4. Not only that but each and every time my computer recognise the cable with no issues at all. If you are going to use an other USB port let windows search for the best driver and always check for the COMM port assignment as it will be different from port to port.
- high quality cable. - 98.5cm length. long enough to work around with your UV. - works great using Baofeng programming software & GHIRP. The KENWOOD RPC K1-U USB cable will be referred / recognised by windows as [Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COMx)] cable. Driver: by Prolific Technology Inc. Driver file name: C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\Ser2pl.sys
tested using the UV-B6. Nice price & works great. Buy it!
