I upgraded my OS to 10.12 and Chirp will no longer allow me to access the USB programming cable. I have tried both cables, that have worked for 4+ years, no problem, now I get this. I have been using Chirp with the UV5R/UV-82/UV-5x3 without any issues prior to upgrading the OS. Now, no matter what I try I am dead in the water.

An error has occurred

could not open port /dev/cu.usbserial: [Errno 2]
No such file or directory: '/dev/cu.usbserial'

Sounds like you need to install drivers for your cable.

I have reinstalled all the drivers, more than once. I have also removed the drivers and reinstalled them. That is the first thing I tried doing.

Perhaps you can get further input from here:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
However, this is an issue with your operating system, not with Chirp.
