ipad in recovery mode

I tried to restore my new ipad.  I had it synced with the wrong itunes library.  It did not finish.  Came in this morning and all it shows is the itunes logo and a usb cord on the screen.    THen it says that ipad is in recovery mode.  I try to restore and it says that "the ipad cannot be restored at this time because the ipad software update server could not be contacted or is temporarilty unavailable.  Any reason for this?  This has not been jailbroken.
