    I'm restoring my ipods last backup and it's taking absolutely forever. Two hours now and it's almost 1/3 of the way done. Does it always take this long?

    Hmmm, how come your restore took so long? Maybe your delay is due to the huge number of songs in your playlist... 1700 songs is a lot, buddy!

    I have around 650+ songs and 300MB of apps when I did a restore about a month back (due to stupid files in the "Others" category eating up almost 2GB of space, WTF)... The restore only took around 15 minutes before the iPod was back to the last saved settings...
