You should let us know your OS, and whether or not your OS's own file browser reports the same error ...
Got the same problem today, totally out of the blue, but I think I found the solution.
In the Photo Downloader check if you have "Apply Metadata" set to any specific template. In my case I had it pointing to a template that was corrupted. So either point it to another template or choose "None" from the drop down list.
Hope this helps
I just got the same message "Adobe Bridge CS3 cannot obtain files from this device. Please ensure that the device is connected properly, or that the battery is charged, and try again." Did changing the "apply metadata" template work?
It worked for me, try it and see...
I haven't tried it for ages (I rather gave up with CS3, preferring CS and import using Capture One Pro) but I think it worked for me once I made those suggested changes.
I can't offer to experiment with Camera and CS3 as I am laid up in hospital now so have no access to camera, etc.
Best of luck!
First check if you have the latest version for Bridge CS3 (it should be 18.104.22.168)
Then restart Bridge holding down option key to refresh the preferences. Then set the preferences again to your wishes and try again.
You should prefer a card reader for downloading images instead of directly from the camera. there are several threads with the reason why this is a better method.
Photodownloader can do this job, don't forget to explore the advanced settings :-)
