I'm running Windows 7 and I keep getting an error 3200 that it can't be updated and that it must be restored. I try restore and I get the same error. All firewalls, anti-virus and malware detection programs are off. I've restarted my computer. I've deleted the iOS 5 update and have re-downloaded. Still no luck.

Any thoughts on a ERROR 3200?

I'll keep this basic and not too wordy... The error 3200 actually started out as a Error 1603 saying that the update failed and that I needed to recover and update the device.

1. Disconnect the iDevice
2. Restart your computer
3. Start iTunes
4. Sign out of your Apple account
5. Sign in to another Apple account or create a new one
6. Unplug your USB cord and plug it into another USB port
7. Hold down the iDevice's Home button
8. Plug the other end of the USB cord into the iDevice while continuing to hold the Home button until you see the graphic on the iDevice saying it wants to connect to iTunes.
9. Your device should now update
10. The iDevice will reboot and will show you the setup screens. It will then ask you to keep the device connected as it restarts.
11. Keep it connected and let it restore your apps, etc. Once it's done, you're done. But if it does not connect with iTunes or does not restore your apps then do the following:
12. (Only do this if the device did not connect with iTunes) Disconnect the iDevice
13. Restart your computer
14. Start iTunes
15. Sign out of your dummy account
16. Sign in with your preferred Apple ID
17. Connect your iDevice
18. Restore your apps! You're done!

Oh! And FYI, for the love of (insert deity here) do NOT unplug your device when it says it is restoring your apps!!! Mine was taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r to load the apps and the iPad didn't have a "wait, synching screen" and the only indication I had was the notification in iTunes. I thought this was some error and that all apps were on the device. Nope, they weren't.

Consequently, when I then went back to sync my apps from the iTunes Library I kept getting installation errors on the device!

I then had to go to the app store on the device and reinstall all the apps that weren't on there. It's a pain so be careful! Not to mention, you will lose any saved data that an app may have!

Has anyone ran into: "The iPhone could not be restored. An internal error." After it attempts to extract the software?
