Make sure all the drivers have been installed in the control panel of your computer. Let the computer search for an additional driver if it will. Unplug the USB while all is on and give it some time to see if it installs something more. You may have to restart your computer several times with the device USB unplugged and then with everything on plug it back in and see if the computer will recognize it again.

Epson RX580 Communication Error During Install

Hey...

I ran into a similar problem (okay, the same problem), and my problem turned out to be my USB cable. I was using an extender. When I ran the cable to the PC without the cable extender, my problems disappeared. If you're not using an extender, you might just try a different USB cable.

Hope that helps...

IXUS 80 can you help...photos won't download.."COMMUNICATION ERROR"

This can be due to various reasons
1)The driver is corrupted: The camera's drivermay be corrupted. Uninstall the driver and any software and then connect the camera to the PC and then re-install the software.
OR
2)The USB cable might be faulty. Remove the memory card from the cam and try using a USB card reader(You can get one for 5$) and see if works. If it does may be then its time to buy a new USB cable for your cam.
3)Last but not least the cam's firware may been corrupted. Its pretty easy to flash the firmware so we can try it. Let me know if the above solutions worked or not so that we can try the firmware update
