    Your iPhone has a hardware issue and should be replaced.

    Time to get that one replaced. Asked Apple for a brand new one this time and no refurbished units.

    Logic would dictate that if this is happening between both your iPod touch as well as your iPhone, both of which are running variants of the same operating system, the problem isn't with the devices as much as its something wrong with the computer itself. There is a list of known error code on the Apple support site.

    However, usually all restore errors can fall into three categories:

    Bad usb connectivity
    Bad network connectivity
    (most rare) bad device

    With that said, disable all firewalls, make sure that you're not plugging into a usb hub, and that the cord isn't bent out of shape. If any of these do not pass, its probably going to end in an error code of some form.
