KENWOOD KPG-141d

Can anyone help me, I'm trying to program a nx-220 and the software I have is older than what is in the radio. Is there a way I can update the firmware to the most current?

Ok I got it to open and download, but it is telling me the version on the radio is a newer version. 
Firmware Version on the radio is K 4.00.00. But it won't read the radio.

"The configuration data in the transceiver contains the configuration data for a function which cannot  be configured by this software; hence, the configuration data cannot be read from the transceiver. To read the configuration data, the latest version of field programming unit must be installed." 

It reads the radio then when I select ok that pops up.

Yea I just talked to my local kenwood guy, he said the lastest version is the 5.21. He said it should still read and write to the radio though. He said I may have a cable problem. I'm not in the programming business by no means. I just program my own radios so I'm not an expert lol. You guys have really been great in helping me! I will be making a donation.

It is a USB cable. He did say the USB ran faster then the serial which sometimes caused trouble.
