CHIRP typically does not use DAT files from other radio programming software.

When using a CSV file, it must be in the proper format for CHIRP. You can't just upload any random CSV file into CHIRP.

A good way to see how a CSV file should be formatted would be to download from your radio and then export the newly created tab to a CSV file. Then you can examine the CSV file in a text editor or other compatible CSV file program (a spreadsheet program for example) to see how it is formatted.

When i am trying to save the file that i downloaded from radio i am allowed to save it only as img. file and not CSV....do you have any proper CSV file to send me to use it as basis?
thanks

You can export (different menu item from "save as") as CSV within Chirp. Please try that and let us know.
