  1. MusicalMac macrumors newbie

    The world ;-)
    I recently decided to download the new iTunes so I could get the new software for my iPod. I clicked update, and its taking days to back up my iPod. This is an 8GB iPod with hardly any apps, No Videos, a few Images but many songs. Any advice would be very much appreciated; also, how long is this meant to take?! Has anyone had it back up for more than 6 hours?
    Thank you for your time,
    MusicalMac <3 x :)

    6hrs is definitely excessive, but when I update my friends 8gb iPhone 3GS with iOS 5 last month, since she bought her phone in June she had never plugged it in phone to a computer to sync or back-up (and her phone had about 4-5GB of memory used, mostly apps) and it took about 45 minutes for the first back-up.

    Time will vary for everyone, but 6hrs is too long for a back-up.
