    When did you last back up? If you haven't backed up for a while it will take a long time. There is nothing wrong just wait for the backup to finish.

    You using the same/right cable? Using an older sync cable can do that. I was using an old cable just for charging and when I tried to sync with it, it took forever. Just sayin..

    ----------

    uhh.... well i guess i havent backed it up in like 2 years? and waiting for over 12 hrs just for it to backup is just plain wrong i started at like 8:30pm last night and it finished at like 1:48pm next day so yea technology hates me =.=

    ----------

    hmmmm.. maybe thats one of the reasons why i was using my sister old cable from her 180gb ipod thanks for the advice :D

    Hope everything is good. it will just take 15-20 mins to finish backup.2 hours is horrible, you can even do nothing with it. Good luck ! :)
