    Three hours ago I plugged in the ipad into my Mac to update the iPad. It was moving slowly and I was doing work. I just checked on it and it was still in the backup stage. I clicked cancel because I thought the process was taking an exorbitant amount of time. Now the top of iTunes still says "Canceling backup" and I cannot quit out of iTunes because it says the iPad still updating.

    What do I do?

    Wait for it to cancel the backup. It can take quite a long time depending on how full your iPad is for it to perform the backup in iTunes, just let it run and do other stuff, it will finish eventually.

    Thanks. I was just afraid to leave it like that. Will the update still go through?

    Now we're really running into trouble. I left the update for awhile, but it was going on six hours so I did a Force Quit to iTunes. Restarted the mac, replugged in the iPad.

    Now when I go to update the iPad again I keep getting the message, "iTunes could not back up the iPad because a session could not be started with the iPad. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPad and try again."

    So I keep doing this and the same message comes up. Ideas?

    Might have fixed it: did a reset of the iPad and hooked it back in. Seems to be moving along a bit now.
