    I plugged my iPod in this morning to get it upgraded to 2.0.2 - and it's been "backing up" for almost two hours. Is there anything I can do? iTunes is unresponsive while it backs up so I can't even listen to music. The update is all downloaded, it's just waiting to install and backing up. The progress bar is maybe a sixth of the way across. Does anybody have any advice? Any ideas? Is my iPod ever going to be done backing up?

    EDIT: I should say that I"ve been postponing the backups (i.e. clicking the little x beside the backup bar when it syncs) for speed's sake. Obviously this has something to do with it, but still, unnnh. Any guesses as to when it'll be over?

    I don't know if this is normal or not. I just got my touch in the mail about an hour ago and I got the 2.0 update and the 2.2 and the download took about 3 minutes and installing took about 10. Now i am uploading oall my content to it and thats whats taking the most time.

    The less you backup you iPod or Sync it the longer the backup takes for me.
