The ICOM OPC-478UC is a special USB cloning cable kit. The kit includes the OPC-478UC interface box, the OPC-1637 USB cable (with RFI choke) and a Windows driver CD. It is recommended that the OPC-478UC not be used with a USB extension cable as data errors may result.
It is recommended that the USB driver be installed before connecting the cloning cable. Please note that this CD does not contain the actual cloning program, which is sold separately.
Please note that the OPC-478UC does not work with Vista out of the box. However, the needed Vista drivers may be downloaded from the Icom website at: http://www.icomamerica.com/en/support/kb/Article.aspx?ArticleNumber=812A2A454A.
