I hardly ever hook up my iPad to my computer...

    To sync it with iTunes. Is that bad? I think the last time was to get the latest update. And I was glad it didn't blow up or croak!:D

    So when I do sync it, will it take an extra long time?

    If you did a lot of changes (e.g. downloaded apps, bought movies/music, imported a bunch of photos) since your last sync, then yes a backup during sync will take a while.

    But in one sitting, you sync, then decide to add some photos to the iPad, sync again, then oops, forgot to add a new song I ripped, sync again., then oh yeah that new movie I converted, sync again...every backup after the first will take a few seconds. Synching will only take as long as whatever it is you're synching. I've done that scenario many times. :)

    Speaking of which, I went to the Apple site and there's a front page message about iTunes 10. I wonder if it's available at this point?

    That's a good idea. I should start doing that.

    Thank you!

    Yeah I sync only when I'm going to update, we can always redownload apps, I don't use the iPod portion so no biggie on songs, also most of my pics are put on via photobucket. So I'm good

    Longer for me, I think. So really, there are only two reasons...

    To update and back up what we bought new, right?

    since i do not have any photos on the ipad to speak of just about 25 photos total of my grandkids and kids and my girlfriend along with 14 applications and about 10.gbs of music on the ipad in 10 diff folders i have ..

    the last the time i backed it up was when the new apple.O.S. update came out for the ipad and i updated then..

    something i learned was to connect the unit to the itunes and update and leave it alone to allow it update..
