Wouxun KG-UV950P channel programming problem fix

Recently we were alerted to a programming issue with the Wouxun KG-UV950P Quad Band Base/Mobile Two Way Radio. When channels are programmed from the keypad on the speaker mic or on the radio itself, accessing and scanning those channels is not a problem. However, when using the KG-UV950P Commander programming software provided by the manufacturer, the radio does not display all of the channels.

Symptoms
When you attempt to program more than two channels into the KG-UV950P using the KG-UV950P Commander programming software, the radio seems to only acknowledge the first two channels programmed and will only display and scan those channels. All frequencies entered into the programming software can be stored to and retrieved from the radio, however only the first two frequencies will be displayed and accessible from the radio when it is in operation.

For instance, you program frequencies into ten channels using the programming software and write the file to the radio. The KG-UV950P will only display and scan the first two channels programmed into it. All other channels are not displayed or accessible.

Cause
This issue occurs when the KG-UV950P Commander programming software is used on a computer with Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 installed. It does not occur when the software is installed on a computer with Windows XP.

Solution
We contacted Wouxun and worked with them to troubleshoot and resolve the issue. Wouxun then sent a fix to us for review and upon testing the fix we determined that it did resolve the issue. After reporting our test results to Wouxun, they released a new version of the KG-UV950P Commander with this fix to Buy Two Way Radios for distribution.

If you ordered a programming cable for the Wouxun KG-950P from Buy Two Way Radios after February 25, 2014, it should include the latest version of the KG-UV950P Commander programming software. Customers who purchased the programming cable with software from us before this date will need to replace their current version of KG-UV950P Commander and install the latest update.

To update KG-UV950P Commander, follow these simple instructions:

1. Download KG-UV950 Commander R2.V1.02.
2. Uninstall the old version of KG-UV950P Commander from your computer.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Install KG-950P Commander R2.V1.02.

NOTE: Update the programming software only. It is not necessary to uninstall or re-install the USB cable driver.

    Keith, if you are using the red Wouxun programming cable for the KG-UV950P, the Prolific driver will not work because the hardware does not match, which is why you are getting a BSOD. The Wouxun cable requires the CP210x USB to UART Bridge Driver. If the cable was purchased from Buy Two Way Radios, the correct driver is included on the CD that came with the cable.
    Also, check your connection to the radio. Be sure the cable is connected to the data port marked PC and not the port for the speaker mic. A number of our support calls have been resolved by simply tracing the programming cable to the speaker mic port. This happens a lot more often than one may think.
    If you are not using the Wouxun programming cable, the connector may look the same, however the pinouts may be different and the cable may not work with the radio.

    I have tried all different drivers with no success at all. I still cannot communicate between either of two Windows 10 computers to the KG-UV950P. I have downloaded the Commander from all sorts of sites and have got completely stuck. I have even tried the Prolific 3.2.2 driver as has been suggested, but my computer throws a stack overflow message on the Blue Screen of Death.
    What am I to do?

    I would suggest taking the unit back to the supplier or contacting Wouxun directly as if the unit is only a couple of years old it should not have such a problem.
    If they were to tell you tuff luck adn that they are not willing to support their units then that is enough for everyone to not wish to purchase such a brand.
    So far I have not had any manufacturer, especially in China who is willing to get a bad name on their products as if they are not willing to support their products that will be the end of their sales as the internet is a very small place.

    Mi fallla es que mi radio base KG-UV920P dejo de funcionar una de las mitades del doble display. Apenas tiene un año de comprado.
    Solo puede verse el sector derecho del display, mientras que el sector derecho no se ve. el display esta en blanco. Alguna sujerencia?

    Respecto al software KG-uv950, es inutil ya que tiene fallas grabes de programación y de interfaces llegando al final solo a programar 2 canales y después se queda pegado el programa,probado con win xp,win7..
    Wouxon le falta mucho para llegar a parecerse a los otros equipos de marcas conocidas, esperando que solucionen unos de tantas fallas que tiene este modelo.

    Purchased KG-UV950P this past Saturday with software and cloning cable included. Could not write to radio, trying 2 different laptops. Downloaded your KG-UV950 Commander and followed instructions. Still could not write to radio.
    Read from radio and wrote same file back to radio. It worked. Tried my file again, no luck.
    Took the read file from radio and added my frequencies and wrote file to radio. I worked this time. I had manually input about 3 frequencies to the original 3 frequency file from the radio.
    Called the company I purchased the radio from expecting help, no luck, did no know what the problem may have been.
    Looks like you have to use the original read file and then add to it to program additional frequencies.
