    iTunes is saying:

    Please help: trying to update but iTunes is saying "An error occured while backing up this ipad (-50). Continuing will result in the loss of all contents on this iPad."... Anyone know what's going on?

    Got this same error msg. I believe it is caused by differences in what itune has and updated apps on your ipad. Without closing itunes, click on your ipad and sync it. After that hit update again, it will not download the 707 mb ios5 file again and should start the backup process right away.

    Same Here

    Got exactly the same message, most frustrating after 2 hours downloading.

    Not a great start. Did sync as suggested, then it was trying to restore settings but (fortunately) couldnt even do that.

    Been reading all the threads, most everyone is having multiple problems with the download. I've tried 6 times, keep fixing issues but now stuck with the dreaded "3200" on the restore. Lots of folks have gotten that and those that have called have been told it's because Apple's server is blown out.

    I'm having a similar issue (different error, and It's telling me it failed to backup my iPad), hope it's fixed up soon. I'm updating all my apps right now, "maybe" that'll help.

    Just talked to a nice lady on tech support...she seemed more hacked off than me because her iPad is giving her the same 3200 error message I am getting. Their official response is the server is buried and "try again in a half hour" (when the rest of the world is also doing the same thing). FYI, same issue with my iPhone iOS 5 update too. Same error message.

    This worked for me...

    After updating iTunes, I received the "error 3200". I then realized, because I have multiple user accounts on my machine I had to log into each user account and launch iTunes and Click "AGREE" to the user agreement. After doing this I logged back into my user account and launched iTunes and the iPad "IOS 5" update worked.
