This error might be caused by a hardware malfunction. To fix it, try using another USB ports in order to connect the device. If you receive this error on every of them, it is possible that you will need a professional assistance and to contact a computer service.

You can also try to uninstall all the USB drivers in order to install them again. To do that, right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Right click on every entry in Universal Serial Bus (USB) controller and choose Uninstall. After you did this, reboot your computer and try to connect your device again.
