I was referring to what crazydude wrote. Just general. I don't know what can be done, but I was also thinking of the remote possiblity a solution is buried here on the board.
About the charging and backup, you don't have the one mini-USB plug? I had the 7100t (that the radio went out on after several good years of use) which I assumed was similar. Anyway for the future think about setting DM to do auto backup. It is fast--at least it isn't slow to me.
