I'm having a problem syncing my 1st generation iPod Touch. It basically just freezes during the sync process. This occurs as it is backing up the Touch. I've noticed that the sync process has been taking hours lately most of that time during the backup. Any suggestions as to what may be causing the problem or how I can fix it? Im not sure if this is relevant but I've done all of the current upgrades to iTunes and the Touch. I've found this thread in the forums, "http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2155566&tstart=120".
They appear to be having a similar problem but don't mention backups. Could the process described at the end of that thread also provide a remedy for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Same thing happening with my 1st gen touch. Regretting that new firmware update. It is hard not to be cynical in thinking that its one of Apple's ways of getting you to buy the newest models. Do they create these updates and only test on the newest hardware?

    I have had no issue with my 1st gen.

    Have you tried reset?
