I have a windows 10 laptop, and a Boafeng UV5R radio. To set up everything using the laptop, I ordered a cable from Alieexpress. With this cable I could not find a good driver for windows 10. After a long search I found cable at Btech in America that was suitable for windows10. Insert the cable into the laptop and windows installs the driver itself. After I last installed Chirp, I loaded data from the two-way radio into a laptop. This went without any problems. After making changes to Chirp, I wanted to restore the data and then get an error message. See Appendix.

Personally, I think that I have a wrong setting or that I have to put other firmware on the radio.

Who can help me further?
