    depends on how much music and stuff you have on it. Mine takes a few minutes, but I don't have a huge amount of stuff on it.

    I downloaded the 3.0 software, now my Touch is taking forever to back up, as in the progress bar is barely moving. Any suggestions?

    exactly the same as mine. about 60% done now but not really doing anything. first half downloaded in like 10 seconds.

    the first one you do on 3.0 will take a long time. all the ones after that will go by pretty quick. and btw it has nothing to do with how big your iTunes library is. it only makes backups of iPod settings, calendar events, safari bookmarks, contacts, etc. not the music video and apps

    yep, it basically saves anything that's not in iTunes but is on your iPod.

    Mine's been at it for like 40 minutes after the update to 3.0 but then again at times it was slow using 2.0 to.
