    try it again with a different usb port.
    if not, then uninstall itunes completely...download itunes again from apple.com...intalled...reboot computer..then try restore again.

    goodluck.

    k let me try that

    Let me make sure im doing this right.
    So first i downloaded the 3.0.1 firmware.
    then i turn my iphone on then connect it to the usb.
    then i hold shift and click on update and select the 3.0.1 firmware.
    Is that right?

    Try putting your iPhone 3G into DFU mode and do a Shift+Restore in iTunes using a stock firmware 3.0.1 for the iPhone 3G that you downloaded from Apple.

    DFU Mode Step-by-Step:

    • Connect your iPhone to your computer.
    • Make sure you are running iTunes 8.2.0.23 or higher.
    • Make sure iTunes is open so you'll know when it enters DFU mode.
    • Turn your iPhone 3G off.
    • Hold power and home together for 10 seconds (exactly).
    • Release the Power button, but keep holding home until the computers beeps (observed on a PC) as a USB device is recognized.
    • Wait until iTunes recognizes the phone in DFU Restore mode (in Windows a bubble pops up saying it recognized new hardware "DFU Mode" or something to that effect)

    To restore from iTunes do the following:
    • Press Shift+ Restore buttons at the same time.
    • Browse to the directory where you downloaded the 3.0.1 firmware for your iPhone 3G.
    • Select the firmware and press the restore button and cross your fingers for 5 minutes.
