    Backups can only go forwards not backwards, so if your backup is 2.2.1 it will only synch with 2.2.1 firmware or 3.0 firware. So your 2.1 3g will need to be upgraded to 2.2.1 or 3.0 to use the backup with iTunes, or if you have both jailbroken you could SSH the relevant information out of the 2.2.1 iphone and the SSH it back into the 2.1 iphone.
