    just take a deep breath and make sure your connected to the computer and try rebooting it again... it should boot normally... if not then i dont know much... make sure its not jailbreaked maybe because i know that prevents it from connecting to itunes... so maybe jailbreak it while its asking to be connected to itunes then unjailbreak it... then try again

    try restarting your iPhone while and connecting to your computer. Then once it connects to iTunes, run the restore. You may also try repairing permissions if you are on a Mac. That help for me when I had an iPod that wouldn't connect.

    From what I have read it is pretty hard to brick the iPhone even if you are hacking it.
