Get error message "Failed to communicate with radio: Unable to read block 0 expected 6 got 4" no matter what the radio's cat setting are set to. Also noted in the FT-450D manual that you cannot clone between a 450 and a 450D, so I assume they are different. Only the 450D shows up in the list, please add support for the 450.

There is a possible solution (a firmware upgrade) suggested in #7839; please check and see whether it helps.

The last firmware for the FT450 NON-D version was V0228. You cannot load the 450D version V-244 firmware into the non-D radio without bricking it.

Thanks for the clarification. A similar comment was made on #7135, where this discussion should continue.
