Your diagnosis was accurate. When I tried downloading using the 
Shearwater software on Win it also did not succeed. After removing the 
battery download was successful in Subsurface. So it looks like the 
problem is indeed in the Shearwater, not in the download software.

Thank you so much for your time.

Kind regards,
