Try the 'reset'

power switch to off (green NOT visible)
Wait > 10 seconds.
power switch back to on (green visible)

now try connecting to computer.

if not working still:

you need to put in a service request to apple; it's likely a hardware problem - often caused by unplugging the device without ejecting it properly first (while files are transferring).

After trying the options mentioned, still facing same issue.
If the problem is hardware how to repair it?

Apple stuff generally you have to return to apple - and they'll use what is called a 'factory jig' -- it connects physically to the device with the ability to wipe it clean and reinstall the system files. It's something they don't allow the public to use - since its closed source and gives access to the root of the machine.

Error 43 means that the device is noticed by the os and is probably operating alright but the driver is not connecting up right. Try reinstalling the driver.
