Can you restore the ipod via iTunes without it needing to be synced? Back up the contents first as restoring will erase everything.
Instead of backing everything up at once, trying backing up just photos or just one playlist. I am assuming that the iPod is authorised as one of your 5 iTunes devices.

Thanks for those answers, how do I back up the stuff as thats what it says it is doing but not seeming to progress. It's the only ipod on there at the moment, do I need to do something to authorise it? Apologies for my lack of knowledge-am very technically challenged!!!
