    I set my iPad 2 up for iCloud backup and I thought all was well. Then I noticed that it is wanting to backup 1.1GB on the camera roll. However I have no pictures or videos on my iPad and only 2 songs. Any idea why this is?

    Beta might not recognize all this contacts, emails, apps ect.....but it counts as well.

    I don't have any of my contacts synced from my iPhone. My calendar and apps are synced but I can control those all separately on the iCloud's settings.

    check the app data thats being backed up.. some apps (garageband, iWork, Downcast etc) have large data files and that can easily go into the gigabytes.

    this would not be classed under camera roll on the apps list in iCloud backup on the device, so not really a relevant comment......

    I have checked all the other applications and they each have their own size below it under the iCloud settings. None of them even come close to that size that it's showing under the camera roll. Its kind of odd that it shows that much and there is nothing showing in the camera roll.

    is it trying to "backup" from your PC to your iPad?
    well... Not exactly backing up but more like syncing (downloading the files from your "My pictures" folder to your iPad)

    it's possible there's just a glitch in your camera roll, this is beta after all, if you have pretty much nothing in camera roll, then i'd suggest a clean restore.
