This is most likely a cable problem. I'll bet you get the "radio does
not respond" error. Try downloading with the cable not plugged into
the radio and you will get the same error. The 2-pin plug is not fully
inserted into the socket.

The GT-3 and GT-5 cases have a ridge around the top of the speaker/mic
socket well that interferes with the angled plug and keeps it from
being fully inserted. See the section regarding the GT-3 on this page:

Hopefully this will solve  your issue.
