Re: Software and Driver

What PC OS?  Linux, XP, Windows 7 or ?

What software? (Kenwood MCP-F6/F7  or ??)

What cable? Kenwood RS-232 or USB? 

I have had great luck on my Windows 7 laptop with the Kenwood MCP-F6/F7 software (free) and the Wouxun USB Programming Cable ($16)

I just installed this a few months ago and it was so straight forward I did not really give it much of  a thought and now I can't remember exactly what I did.

Kenwood software

Wouxun cable

Wouxun USB cable software (? this us  be drive if needed)

PL-2303 Software and Drivers   (this is the USB to RS232 converter that is in the cable)    (it looks like today 3/17/12 the  Prolific site is having a little trouble)

PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v1.5.0.zip  (direct link)

so take this for what it is worth...

1) I had the Kenwood software installed well before I even got the radio or cable, just to play around with it.

2) installing the USB cable. (I can't remember if I just installed the cable and let windows 7 find the drivers or if I installed the drives first before the cable) 

3) after the cable and drivers were installed I located the USB device adapter in the device manager to determine what COM port it was using.  Next in the MCP I set this to use that COM port.

hope it helps
