    A friend of mine had a similar problem and this fixed it (on a Mac):

    Click Finder.
    At the top menu, click Go.
    Select “Go To Folder” from the submenu.
    Type “/private“.
    Open the folder “etc” and locate the “hosts” file.
    Copy it to your desktop > right click > show info > make sure you have the rights to read and edit it.
    Open it in text editor.
    Search “ gs.apple.com” and “ gs.apple.com” (somewhere at the bottom normally)
    Add a “#” and a space before it and save the file.
    Copy it back into the “etc” folder and replace the old “hosts” file.
    Restart iTunes and it should be fixed!

    I found this solution on the Apple discussion board, sadly I can't post a URL since I do not have enough posts yet.

    They're is something wrong with your hosts. Another way to fix is go to getios.com and download your iOS firmware. Then do shift+restore on PC and command+restore on your mac. Did this help?
