First suspect would be your USB cable. Try a different one. Then try a different USB port in your computer. If you're downloading direct from the camera, change the batteries. If you're using a card reader, try a different one. If you're not using a card reader, try with one (it's also faster than downloading straight from the camera).

Sounds like a card problem then. What make and size card is it? You might try some of the utilities here to see if they're any help.
