Its the same CPS.
Two methods of uploading - firmware or codeplug.
Firmware (under Extras) requires you to hold down SK1 and SK2 when booting the radio. Display should be blank and unlit.
The usb id is used (HID) so no special installer required (assuming win10)

For the codeplug - when the cps is installed it will prompt you for a driver install. This is for codeplug read/write.
Radio turned on normally for codeplug transfers - also Extras menu - read/write codeplug.
please see manual for more detail.
DM-1801

I already have uploaded the opendm1801 firmware to my baofeng dm1801 but the opengd77 cps doesn't recognize my device

Hi,

So you probably have a problem with the serial driver installation.


Cheers.

I tried reinstalling opengd77 cps, at the end of the install, i get a black cmd window telling installing drivers, but still opengd77 cps tells me device not found when i try to write codeplug to my Baofeng DM-1801 with opendm1801 custom firmware
