I have the same issue with my ipad and iphone 5 after upgrade to 6.1. My other 3 devices work fine and they are on 6.0.1. Same computer and same itunes. It's got to be a 6.1 issue.

I have the same issue.

The update was over the air and went fine. But now the backup to my computer fails. I have tried everything I can find.
Including a reset of all settings, everything short of a complete wipe, which I don't want to do if my backup is failing

i also have the same issue. Rebooted my mac, did a reset of my iphone 4. Renamed also the backup folder to a new one, but all these actions do not change the situation.

I am having this same issue on my iPad after I upgraded to iOS 6.1. I tried the suggestion on how to fix (deleting backup from iTunes and trying again) but it won't work. In the 3 years of having an iPad I have never needed to restore from backup so I don't really want to wipe the thing in order to get a backup. But it is making me nervous that I don't have one.
