You can bypass this whole problem by just removing the Media card and putting it into your computer directly. Copy/paste from the media card to the PC. I do it All the time and it's quicker than waiting for the camera to download.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

This only happens when the camera has a serious problem. Next to turning off the camera, you also could remove the battery and charge it, before placing it back. Also check all contacts of the battery and memory card. Don't forget to close the battery door correct, after you charged an replaced the battery.
Make sure, nothing can obstruct the movement of the lens when the camera is switched on.

The motor will make a noise as that's the sound of the gears miving along the lens. I wouldn't shake the camera if I were you though.
