I too had difficulty programming my BF’s. A friend of mine programmed my 3 BF’s in a few minutes with Chirp. My cable is a “prolific” cable. He said those are troublesome and the Baofeng cables work every time. Mine was the 3rd of our group with the same problem that he was able to correct.

I bought the better cable and use Chirp
No issues

Woodsy:
Yes, with all the low cost Chinese radios the cable is responsible for the majority of the problems people encounter.  Pay the extra $5-10 for a Baofeng or TYT branded cable from a reputable seller.  You'll be glad you did. 
If you need a little help with the programming there are plenty of tutorials online.  You're BF8-HP actually has some pretty nice features for a $50 radio.
