Mine did that also. The only thing I did was tell iTunes to restore again, and the second time it took.

I think I also read in another post that somebody recemmeded shutting down iTunes, and maybe restarting the computer, and then trying it agin.

Good luck.

I just googled the error message and went to another forum where someone has found the answer - I followed his instructions and it worked perfectly - I had to manually trigger the newest update that was saved on my computer under applications. If anyone else has this prob just google it - its there and it worked. The upload file wasn't exactly where he said it would be on my computer but it was close - a few folders away - just needed some searching.

by triggering the restore manually do u mean to double click on the restore file it self from withing the iPhone Updates Folder ? if so. i already did that and iTunes just opens up giving me the message that it has detected and iPhone in recovery mode and i gotta do the same thing in iTunes basically.
