I'm having the same error connecting to a Samsung Note 8.0 using Windows 8.1 via USB cable. It works for a few minutes, but stops and Windows displays the "Device Unreachable" error message.
While accessing metadata using Calibre, I noticed that the device became unreachable when an extremely long path/filename was encountered. 

I shortened the directory name and filename of the file that appeared to be causing the problem and this resolved the issue.
