    Angry 20hr + Backup

    This problem is killing me! I have tried all the suggestions of deleting the old backup files, removing possible trouble apps, uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes, etc, etc.

    I have no idea why this is so crappy -- and why Apple is refusing to acknowledge the problem. I've looked even in the Apple forums and people are talking about the problem, but no response from Apple.

    It's killing me now because I want to upgrade to iOS 4.2 and the upgrade forces the system to run a backup first. So i am never getting to the actual upgrade because the backup has been taking so long!

    Anybody have any other solutions??

    BTW, I have an iPad 3G 64GB, but memory is less than half full with mostly music, video, and photos.

    I feel your pain. It 24 hours for me to get through the backup and install 4.2! Many times I thought it was frozen, but I just finally walked away and when I woke up this morning it was finished.

    I had this issue and had to end up deleting the massage amount of Podcast audio and video files.

    Now that I think about it maybe try not syncing podcast first before deleting them (if you have any).

    I do believe you are not using the original iPad wire that came with the iPad the iPad wire and iPhone/iPod are different. The iPad wire if faster at data transfer I had same problem when I mixed up my wires and sat dumbfounded at the painfull backup! find the iPad should be squared off and mark it! Have read numerous threads on this i do believe this is halls problem. Try it.

    Sometimes the more often you sync/back up, each time will be shorter. Mine took 8 hours. Now it is 30 min.

    I have 200 songs, and 26 apps.

    I disagree. I think they are the same. I use my daughter's iPod plug which is identical to my iPad one.

    I tried it I even confirmed with apple call them. They are identical looking! charging will be the same depending on the outlit adapter but data backup will go painfully slow with iPhone or iPod wire. But you are right if you try to backup and the last time you had 10 apps now 60 it will be faster.

    This might help. ^^ I have never heard anyone here state that using an iPod or iPhone plug slows anything down.

    I don't get apps often, so I have had the same amount of apps when it took 8 hours, and now when it takes 30 minutes.

    The cable does not seem to help

    Following the advice on this and other forums, I tried several "square" cables. It does not help.
    Any other ideas?
