One of the problems with the GT-3 series case style is that the ridge
around the 2-pin socket well can prevent the 2-pin plug from being
fully inserted into the socket. No programming software will work if
you don't have a complete and working connection between the radio and
computer. See this page for details of a possible fix.


I that isn't the problem, it would help if you would include the
debug.log file. This page show you how to locate the debug.log file.
