      Got the new cable today and it works with Windows 8.1.  No problems and working at v1.9 Uniden download program with no problem.


      New Hardwared IDs are:





      $30 through Amazon to get back in operation.


      Good day!

      Per your request, the Hardware Ids are:





      The driver files are:





      Prolific Technology Inc.




      Even though I install much older versions, this is what device manager always show.


      As I stated before, there was an update applied 2/2/14 through windows update accidently.  It was previously blocked, but came through anyway and got installed.  The driver cannot be rolled back.  I can delete the program.  Close down the computer, restart it and nothing is there.  Install the old version 1.5 or 1.6 or 1.6 and the drivers I end up with are the ones shown above.


      I am running windows 8.1 on a 64 bit machine.

      Lets see how Windows sees the cable and maybe we can find the right driver.


      Go into Device manager either thru Control Panel or by running devmgmt.msc and find your cable listed.  Since it isn't working it should have a yellow exclamation point. Right-click on the device and choose Properties.  In the next window choose Details.  In the drop down under Property choose Hardware Ids.  What I'm curious to see is the VID and PID values.  For example, a USB to serial cable on my machine shows USB\VID_0557&PID_2088.  We can look up these values to verify what manufacturer chipset is used.  It might also be helpful if we had the currently loaded driver info.  This is shown in the previous tab under Driver.
