    It sounds like you may have downloaded the file from some other source besides Apple, yes? You should be able to go through iTunes and restore your iPad properly.

    Its probably not your iPad that is damaged, but rather the file system.

    You might want to try holding the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears on the screen then let go of the buttons. At this point you should be able to do a complete system restore to iOS 4.2.1 through iTunes.
