U seem to be connected to a USB hub.

try connecting it to the USB port on the back of your PC.

hope this helps

hub may or may not provide enough power to the external device

its safer to transfer pictures via card reader than direct through camera body

The problem as some had said is due to your hub not able draw supply enough power for your camera to a stable connections. If your hub has options to connect to an external power adapter, this will solve your problem. If yours doesnt, you will have to plug direct into a unshared usb port.
