Bug #5503

Cannot read/write radio memory: Wouxun KG-UVD1P

Target version:chirp-daily
Chirp Version:daily Platform:Windows
Model affected:Wouxun KG-UVD1P


I receive errors when reading versus writing, happening every time.

Each time I attempt a read from the radio: "Failed to communicate with radio: Failed to read full block (67!-68)"
Each time I attempt a write: "Failed to communicate with radio: Radio did not ack block 48." <-- I note this block seems to change. The previous attempt mentioned block 32 I believe.

I am attaching screenshots and debug log files.

Just to note my toubleshooting, I fully reset the radio which did not help. I also verified the install and cable as I have a Wouxun KG-UV8D working just fine with CHIRP.

Have you been able to resolve this on your own since you submitted this?
Have you tried with a recent version since you submitted this?

You said that the same physical cable works on a KG-UV8D, is that correct? This still looks like a cable, connector, or driver issue. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
Your log says you're using Windows: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version
