I went through 10 radios and I am getting the same massage every time. "unexpected error communicating with the radio". I had the same problem last month and I used a download from here to fix it but this time it didn't work.

CHIRP is not getting a response from the radio after sending the clone request.

Are you using a known good programming cable (do you successfully program other radios with it)?
If not, does it contain a Prolific type USB-to-TTL chip in it (use Device Manager to fine out)?
If yes, have you downloaded, installed and selected the older Prolific v3.2.0.0 device driver?
