Picked up a new to me used VX-5 and Chirp will download from the radio, but there is an error uploading that freezes CHIRP, and there is a receive error on the VX. I have done a hard reset on the HT, updated CHIRP, and researched the issue. It appears it might have something to do with MAC OS, but I was wondering if anyone had any feedback or ideas, or perhaps alternative software. Any help is appreciated.

There are a lot of variables in play here we would need more detail to help diagnos the issue.

What version of CHIP and Mac OS are you using?

Are you using a Yeasu cable or a generic third party? If you are not using a Yeasu cable what make and model cable are you using?

It would appear it was a MAC OS issue. My old Windows laptop was able to program the radio just fine.
