This issue is not similar to #1751. In #1751 the computer was communicating with the radio. In your case it is not. To test this, leave the programming cable completely unplugged from the radio and attempt a download. The result will be the same "Radio did not respond" error.

In your case, the plug on the programming cable is not being fully engaged with the socket in the radio. The design of the case around the socket of the GT-3 radio series is such that it makes it more difficult to get the plug fully inserted in order to make proper connection. You may have to try trimming of the plug's shell in order to be able to get the plug to be inserted fully into the radio. No programming software will work with your radio until the plug is fully inserted into the socket.

Tips for how to deal with this issue are on the Radio did Not Respond section of the Miklor.com website's Common Error Messages FAQ page.
