Hi, I know this is a bit a late, but when you put this error in Google it's one of the first to appear - so I thought this might be useful for other users.
I've just had the same error when a Windows user brought me his "broken" digital camera. I plugged into my own laptop and got the error described.
In my case the fix was to change the USB cable for a new one and everything worked normally again.
