    People will be better able to help you with a lot more information than you're providing.

    The following are helpful:

    Windows or Mac
    Firmware version on the phone
    Jailbreak you used
    iTunes version
    Screenshot or exact wording of the error message

    As for what you've done:
    Have you tried a different USB port on the computer?
    A different cable?
    A different computer?
    Have you tried reinstalling iTunes on the computer? Heck, did you simply try restarting the computer, because sometimes iTunes (and other apps) do better with a fresh restart?

    All of this is extremely basic triage, and should be performed before you delete anything else that might make things worse. And if you have already tried these things, it's helpful for people here to know so they don't give you bad or unnecessary advice.
