No, actually this is the first iPhone I connect to this laptop. Never connected an iPad to it either and haven't connected my iPod touch in almost a year. My iTunes is version 10.5 but I'm still using snow leopard. I don't think that should make a difference though.

If I can't get this fixed by friday, I'm gonna have to take my iPhone back

I just bought a new AT&T 4S as device only yesterday. When I plug it in to iTunes everything seems fine but when I try to restore, it gives me the message "the iPhone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build." I put the phone in DFU mode but I still get the same message. There isn't anything helpful on Apple's website either.
have you jail broken any other idevices? if so there may be remnants of the jailbreak on your system...I had the same issue with my iPad because my iPhone was jailbriken but my iPad was not. I can't remember the website but I found instructions on how to change the wording of one file and after doing so I was able to update my iPad. just do a google search with the error message. good luck.

^^ Yes! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! You're the most awesomerest

I had jailbroken my iPod touch eons ago and completely forgot that I had set iTunes to Cydia servers. It was so simple once I figured it out.
