     Don’t be worry. Apple has specially build an iTunes which simply rollback iPods and iPads to their original factory conditions. It is very useful for correcting certain types of operating glitches. This error indicates that your iTunes “version is not eligible against the request you made. In simple words, iTunes and your device are not compatible. It’s not a big issue. Just by following these you will surely fix it.

    1) Open iTunes by connecting your iPod or iPad to your computer system with the help of USB cable, 

    2) Disconnect all the devices which are connected to computer system.

    3) Click “Help” or “iTunes” depending upon your system.

    4) Updating iTunes to the newest version by clicking on “Check for Updates.” According to Apples site, it is very beneficial for fixing error 3194. 

    5) After completing the above steps, click the Windows “Start” orb, type “Windows Update” into the blank start menu field, click the update icon, and click “Check for Updates “ and for MAC, process is different.

    6) Disable all firewalls and anti-virus protection .sometimes these security measures block iTunes and result in system restore error codes.
