I want to upgrade my iPad to iOS 4.2 but whenever I try I get an alert stating that, "There are purchased items on the iPad "XXXX" that have not been transferred to your iTunes library. You should transfer these items to your iTunes library before updating this iPad."

These items, I believe, are books. From the Books tab (in iTunes), I get an alert (when I check to sync books) that states, "Are you sure you want to sync books? All existing songs, movies and TV shows on the iPad "XXXX" will be removed."

My iTunes library doesn't presently have any of the purchased books in it. I can replace the songs, etc., from my iTunes library so no big deal if they're removed only from the iPad.

But will I lose the books from my iPad? How can I back them up before I sync to make sure I can recover them if something goes haywire??

Thanks in advance.
