Programming a IC F50V

Post

Need an ID to finish downloads

 YO TROOPS,
  It seems that I have downloaded the 3 SW packages from Hamfiles including Extract All. However on Setup a window pops up that wants an id number ( i think ) and I dont know what this is. Help Please.

4.clicking clone >  gives me an error message "cannot read from radio" or radio not responding.

I do like the f50v after i sent it to a programmer listed on Ebay. It has all the freqs and info i wanted. HOWEVER, it will not scan and i suspect he goofed on this. So I have the 3 sw files from Hamfiles. Also the advertised correct pgm cable.
The error tells me cannot read the radio.
  I tried all the Baeofeng tricks but nothing worked.
 In desperation, I scored and old Vertex Standard,sw and cable for it. All this worked like a champ!!!  I can pgm anything I want to it.
  I read that the F50v pgm cable I bought off Ebay could easily be a dud. I also read to make the cable work right to get a FTDI chipset and replace the original cable chipset with the good new one. All the instructions pages on the internet show soldering 5 or 6 wires to the new chipset. I cut off the cables orig chipset and get ready to follow the new replacement install info. WOW !! The F50v cable only has 3 wires !!
  Can anyone tell me how to hook up the 3 wires to the 5 pin new FTDI chipset usb connector ?
 Thanks in Advance.   Sarge
