Can't Complete a Restore

Hope someone can help me with this one.

I'm trying to restore my JB Ipad but Itunes keeps crashing thus preventing a restore.
I've downloaded Itunes and reinstalled but no joy.

On the Ipad screen is the Apple logo with the white wheel which is stationary.

When I start the restore it says it should take about 13 minutes. I get down to between 9 or 6 minutes to go and it locks up.


Running on Windows XP
chang another computer!

I had same problem i have try to restore but not work . but it work like a magic when i reinstall my window 7 64bit and it work!
You can fix this in a few different ways.

1.) Change to a different USB Port ( Crazy I know but it worked a few times like that.)
2.) If running on a host revert to a DEFAULT Hosts file.
3.) Reformat ( a HUGE PITA but you cannot deny that it works! LOL!!!! )
4.) Form a pentagram and pray to the Apple Gods. ( NOT RECOMMENDED...OR REAL )
I bought an iPad with 3.2 JB. At home I tried to restore itunes 10.1 and 3.2 fw, but it was not working. I downloaded itunes 9.2.1 and I tried to put 3.2.2 with option button and from itunes too. I've that message: "The Ipad could be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build." My iPad can't reboot just stuck the apple logo on the screen. Hard reset does not work. Please help!!!
