Unhappy iphone error 6 - HELP!

I've been trying to restore my iPhone for DAYS now, everytime it runs it gets about 25% through and then fails, I get: 'an unknown error occured - error (6). does ANYONE know what this might mean, or know of a way to fix it? I're read that it might be a USB problem, but I've tried in in 4 different computers with no change. also tried the restore in Windows with the same result.

I would check here. Sounds like you have a broken iPhone, by way of a bad car charger.

(also, check other usb cables, just in case)

After trying different cables, USB ports and removing USB devices etc I finally tried disabling all my firewall and anti-virus software temporarily while the restore/upgrade took place.
This finally solved the problem.

Hope some of you find this usefull
