    try this:

    1. Take your iphone out of the docking station while leaving the usb/docking station connected to your computer
    2. Power off your phone for at least 10 seconds
    3. Put phone back in docking station
    4. Press and hold the menu button while powering on your iphone until u see an icon w an arrow appear on your iphone
    5. itunes application will give u a new message to restore. Follow instructions.

    If it doesn't work download a fresh version of iTunes

    Try restoring on another computer, then sync to yours.

    Here's what Apple recommends.

    would the fact that the iemi has been changed cause this proble.

    it arrived from the states unlocked, and i think they changed the iemi.

    I wouldn't know. IEMI, that's something just for Europe, isn't it? 1064 errors and others while trying to restore from iTunes have happened well before there were iPhones in Europe. I had that problem after I modded mine, then tried to install an update which forced me to restore (on my main computer). I went around it by restoring from my laptop.

    The IEMI is different on each phone, at least that is what I was told today. Actually HAWK knows this stuff inside and out, he can shed light on this.

    The phone is a usa model with upgraded 1.1.2 firmware on it.

    When connected to itunes it shows:

    Name: iphone

    Capacity: n/a

    Software Version: n/a

    Serial Number: n/a

    Phone Number: n/a

    Any other help or advise would be great.

    This is true. Like the Serial No., it's different on each.
