I've been working on this for a few hours, searching through all of the posts and nothing has worked & I am getting so frustrated!!
I'm on a Vista 34, 3G jb 3.0.
I updated iTunes to 9.0.1 then attempted to update to 3.1 to jb with blackra1n. While doing this the phone keep beeping that it was connected & unconnected repeatedly. I think the wire is messed up. So I held it while it was backing up the iphone and had no problems. Then all of a sudden the phone had the connect to itunes logo so finally i got a new cord. I've gone into DFU mode several times (I think!), restarted the computer with the iphone connected & not connected, I even tried to jb using redsn0w although i knew it wouldn't work.
Anyway, please help me!
Also itunes doesn't recognize the iphone for whatever reason...

The phone is on. It's either in reocovery mode or in DFU mode. When I connect it to itunes, itunes doesn't recognize the iphone. The windows pop up comes up every time i connect it to the computer saying it found new hardware but is unable to install the device driver software. When i go into device manager and right click to update it says that it fails everytime. No matter what I do it says it fails to update the device driver software!
I even uninstalled and reinstalled itunes & it's doing the same thing. I wasn't even attempting to jb at the time-just update to 3.1!
