Check Cables

Verify the cables are properly and securely connected to both the PC and the device.

In some cases the cable may be in the socket, but not fully connected if it was pulled out slightly. For cables like USB, Firewire, or eSATA, it must be fully inserted.

If you have additional connectors on your PC of the same type, you might try another connector. For example, most PCs have multiple USB ports. Try a different port to see if it corrects the issue. Not only does this test a different connector, Windows may re-load the related interface driver.
