While it doesn’t say so directly, this error actually indicates that there has been a communication error with the machine. Most often, we have seen this kind of thing when someone is using either (1) an extra long USB cable (2) an extra thin USB cable, or (3) a USB extension cord, but there are some other things that might cause this. If you are using a cable like one of those, you might try using the one that came in the box. If you are using the cable that came in the box, you might try a different cable (if one is handy), just to rule out that it isn’t our cable that is defective.
