I`ve tried to change the computer looking for an usb problem. Could it be an hardware problem? or can it be resolved with software?

have you checked your usb cord? with time and twisting etc the cable inside can become damaged..use a multimeter to check continuity. have you cleaned the dock and checked pins etc

this is from tech arena.This is also for ipods

Error 9 Unknown

Disconnection Problem

The error 9 means that the iphone was unplugged when handling, it is advised to change usb cable, usb port. (Do not use the Hub)

If problem remains unsolved despite your attempts to Restore in Recovery Mode and DFU, contact service Apple.

This error occurs when the device has been inadvertently disconnected from the USB bus and the communication stopped. This can occur if the device is disconnected manually during the restoration process. You can solve it by making a USB troubleshooting isolation, using a different USB cable dock connector, trying other USB ports, performing the restore on another computer or removing conflicts caused by third-party security software.
