Title:

Why do I receive error code 29 when I attempt a restore?

Text:

During a software update using Itunes the update process was halted and an error message was displayed that said that an unknown error ocurred and that the update was not possible.  Now the phone is not recognized by Itunes, and will not power up.  When I attempt a restore I receive the same message that the restore was not possible due to an unknown error (code 29).  Any ideas would be appreciated.
