Why is this backup taking 3 times as long as the normal 30-40 minutes backups?

    I'm updating to 2.1, and I'm backing up right now. But, I think the backup is being caused by the 2 episodes of a TV show being downloaded that I didn't notice before I started. I hate that you can't use iTunes at all whilst restoring/updating.

    Did u DL any games or app from the appstore inside the ipod touch/ iphone? Coz I read somewhere on this forum that it mess up the backup, making it slower. Search the forum, there's a thread to solve this

    Only once or twice. But mostly it was updating apps when I wasn't near a computer.
