Two things.

 It is common for these cables to not make good contact in the sockets
of the radio. Make sure it is ALL the way in, and hold it there. Some
have even had to trim plug molding to fully insert.

 0.3.1 is very old and not recommended for this radio, get the latest
daily build from: <http://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/> or if
running Ubuntu (or other Debian variants ) use the instructions on right
hand side of page on the download page to add the daily build
repository: <http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/Download>
