username1107, try this: Unplug the phone from the computer. Leave the other end of cable still plugged in the iPhone, now turn the phone completely off, hold home button still while plug other end of cable into your computer, only release Home button. After itunes recognize your phone in recovery mode and that when you heard the USB sounds on your computer. Press shift+ restore to restore your phone. Take a look at this site as well. The error -1 and 1 are most likely caused by baseband errors. They are very hard to fix. Hope this helps, hood luck.

Handy link:

That page lists some error codes, but doesn't suggest anything specific for "-1". Recommends trying to restore on another computer but nothing further if that doesn't work.
