If you're not currently using rechargeable NiMH batteries, recommend trying them to see if that corrects the problem. But either way, also recommend reading the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. I own many cameras and I never connect any of them directly to my computer to download photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Cannot transfer files from computer back to Canon Powershot A530


Your camera is designed to be a source of pictures, not a destination. If you want to copy pictures to a memory card, you need to use a card reader and not a camera.
