Try a DFU restore (search for the specifics). I'd say that's your best bet if it won't let you restore regularly.

unplug the phone

connect the sync cable but do not plug it in yet.

when you see the apple hold down the home button.

while holding down the home button plug in the phone.

Wait until the computer recognizes the phone, you wiil know this as the screen will change.

takes about 3 minutes to recover.
