    I've encountered this problem before; it takes my iPod forever to back up and when it does, it says it can't and had to cancel it after about 20 minutes. I don't need to back my iPod up, so I just cancel it when I go to sync.

    Now, when I try to update to firmware 2.2, I can't do it because it tries to back it up first, does that for 20 minutes or so, gives me Backup error -21, and quits the update. What can I do?

    You need to set it to not sync automatically.

    Then go to on ur ipod : settings>general>autolock>never


    Then leave it, the update should be around 277 meg


    Merry xmas!
