Its been some time since Ive synched my ipad, so I am updating from 3.2.2 to 4.2. When starting the update via itunes, it seems that the backup process is taking an excessively long time, i.e. greater than 2 hours and not done yet. (I started over and removed most of the videos from the ipad itself and, even so, the process doesnt seem to be speeding up).Is this normal behavior? If not, suggestions?
