iPad stuck in DFU mode and not restoring


I have an iPad 4 is currently stuck on DFU mode. When I try to restore in iTunes, it may do one of these 2 things:

1. After extracting the software, the iPad displays the logo and a progress bar but is not progressing (even if I leave it for an hour). It will freeze on that screen or iTunes will give the error 9 notification.

2. After extracting, iTunes will immediately give the error 4014 notification.

Please help...thank you!

First try updating your iTunes

First, open up iTunes. Then, click the "Help" tab on the main menu, and click "Check for Updates" you should be prompted with "A new version of iTunes is available. Would you like to download it now?", then click "Download iTunes"

Try restarting your computer, if that doesn't take, try this
