Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I would advise you to swap the USB cable, after trying a different USB port (if there is more than one to try, on the device at the other end from the Memopad.
(Or is the memopad the device that is apparently not producing a USB connection and the error message is on the device at the other end?)
