    Every time I try to do Restore the process runs and then ends with an Error 21 and that's it. Repeating this again and again but no success. I am doing the sync wit iTunes on. MacBook Pro from which I have synced the iPad several times in the past. Please help!

    Are you running any kind of security software on your MacBook? If so, switch it off while you are restoring your iPad.

    May I join in this thread, please? My iPad2 went blank during an update, run from my iMac: no error message, though. Have tried to recover and restore but always get a message saying the iPad not recognised. Not running any extra security software on iMac. iTunes on the iMac recognises an iPad is connected but notes "Capacity: n/a", "Software version: n/a", Serial No: n/a"

    Any ideas, please?

    I discover a way to solve your problem with error code 21... If you have tiny umbrella... Uncheck cydia as host... Do another
    Restore... You will get the same message.. Unplug the iPad and plug it to another USB .... And click restor again..It work for me.. Good luck
