    okay well basically i have used up about 25GB of 60GB on my new iPad.

    however the wifi sync takes AGES. why is this? I've had it for a while now. i've restored it once for a random reason btw.

    the backing up takes ageeeees! any solutions?

    i have quite a few apps, AVplayerHD taking up most space.

    You are syncing 25gb of data. That's the problem. Lol

    This is normal.

    For a bit faster syncing USB connection is recommended.

    Oh and define "ages"

    the data is already on the iPad though... so is it resyncing all that?

    backing up is taking like 10-20 mins.. are u guys sure it should take this long? my iPhone syncs really fast (and backs up).
