Taking forever to backup

Hey guys, got another question for you. Why is it that my 1st gen Itouch is taking forever to backup? It's currently running OS 3.0. And I've jailbroken it before back when it was 1.1.1.

Same for me on iphone 3G, but I read that this is the normal behaviour.

I mean like forever, like 2 hours and it's not done forever.

It happens for everyone. I'm at about 40% done after 4 hours...

That's odd, never happened to me on my iPod touch 2G, maybe I'm just lucky

i am in the same situation as you, but instead of my iTouch being slow, its really fast, i got 2 gigs of video on and a hell of a lot of saves backed up, in under 10 minutes!
It was much slower in 2.whatever

It backs up slow once, after that should be okay.

First time I upgraded to 3.0 on my iPhone 3G it took a whopping 5 and half hours! Only had 6GB of data on the phone, I was tearing my hair out!

Now it takes no more than a few minutes...

Don't do what I did. I got impatient, ran a restore and all of my save games got deleted. At least it backed up quickly afterwards.
