Couldnt open port. Check whether device/ rib are powered on
I am using windows 7 operating system with i believe 32 bit system, will verify and correct if needed. I am using a usb style cable purchased off ebay. I downloaded the cps off of this site from a very helpful person. I was told i needed version R06.12.06 for programming the HT750 which i should of stated from beginning that is the radio im am having issue when going to read radio. It say "couldn't open port i tried using the drivers that came on disk that came with usb cable but it wouldnt allow to install from disk because it was in a Japanese/ Chinese language so i did a driver search and installed driver then did a second search to verify driver was up to date. Still getting "couldn't open port check whether device is powered on" . I tried with multiple good batteries still will not read. I read to delete other drivers and start from scrath with PL 2303 driver. That is where i am at at this point. Also tried using lowest COMM seting possible .
After the amount of infornation ive been gathering im probably just going to order serial adapter found one for $18 US im still going ro try to install PL 2303 driver already deleted all other ones and am going to start from scratch with much more knowledge than i started with thank you all for the information coming from.

my friend let me tell you alittle story about usb cable .i only used when i cannot get the cable in serial .to much driver .issue .i have some ht 750 radio which i program with my serial cable no issue at all.take a look#https://www.ebay.com/itm/Serial-Programming-Cable-Motorola-Radio-HT750-HT1550-HT1550XLS-DB-9-GP328/162574140629?hash=item25da2c84d5:g:YRIAAOSwpiNZupkU (Serial Programming Cable Motorola Radio HT750 HT1550 HT1550XLS DB-9 GP328 | eBay)
Make sure to delete all previous drivers. Also, when using USB, the comm port can be any number. My computer has it ports 12-20. The HT 750 version depends on the firmware in the radio but the newest software will program it.
Ok well i dont want to one of those people who ask for help and dont respond to the tips but as of yet i been so busy remodeling kitchen and fire academy classes my days have been long with work and everything else but i will be attempting with Prolific driver soon i already deleted all other drivers that came from disk with cables and then the ones i searched and updated myself will report back soon. Thank you all again for info very helpful
Having same issue. Wo dering if you solved this? Im windows 10 though 64 bit. I do know however the cable works as i can use my tuner program to read what the settings are on the radio. Just can get CPS to work.
