I dont know whats up with my touch. Back before 2.0 I would plug it in and it would transfer over songs/video in 10 minutes max... but now I plug it in and it backs up and then transfers things and I am lucky to get my touch back in less than 30 minutes. Is anyone having the same problems? Any thoughts on how to speed things up? Thanks in advance guys.

Many people are experiencing those kinds of sync times with iPod Touch and iPhone. The only thing you can do is cancel your backup. There is a little button with an x on it at the top of iTunes by the status bar. If you are only syncing music and media you don't really need a backup of that because it isn't included. But if you make changes to home screens and other system prefs it's good to keep a backup. Just let it do it once a day or whatever you are comfortable with.

I went from 1.1.4 to 2.0, no problems. No change in speed.
