Im hoping it's not a hardware issue, but here are a few things to try.

1. Try the rear usb ports. In my experience I have a lot of issues with front usb ports on desktops.

2. Try another cable.

3. Try disabling your antivirus software, if you have any.

When the restore fails, you should get an error code of some sort. What is that code?
