    Anyone else had this problem with itunes 8.2 or OS 3.0? It has been backing up for 5 hours or so now... hasn't even started syncing stuff over yet. The progress bar is moving... just VERY slowly.

    I did restore from a 2.2.1 backup after upgrading to 3.0... that didn't take TOO long, but the first time I did a sync the backup has been going 5+ hours and hasn't even started "syncing yet". Could it be because I didn't reboot the PC after installing 8.2? It didn't ever tell me I needed to...

    Yes, the first time after I installed 3.0 it took ages, now it takes about the same as 2.2.1.

    Hmmm, that is a possibility... But how come your system didn't inform you to restart your PC after installing iTunes 8.2? Mine certainly did...

    I wasn't prompted for a restart and backup went just as fast as always. ??
