I am currently updating my iPod touch 1g to 3.0 firmware. I started the update and have been waiting for it to back up my device for about 2 and a half hours. I found the backup folder and the size of the folder is growing slowly but the status bar in iTunes is stuck at the first little green bar thing, and has not changed. I don't know if I did something wrong or if it just normally takes this long. If you need any more info to try and help me please ask. EDIT:: iTunes told me the iPod became disconnected and told me to restart. This was about 45 min. ago and it is at the point where the status says "Backing Up 'iPod'" and the green bars are moving across the bar repeatedly.
