    As you are on 10.4.6. I am afraid you won't be able to sync your calendars with MobileMe. The new calendar arrangements there place the calendars on MobileMe, and iCal and other devices read them from there. Your iPhone is evidently doing so, but I'm afraid that Tiger does not contain the necessary programming to enable your computer to read the MobileMe calendars, so your calendars will stay 'local' and cannot sync.


    The only workaround is to upgrade to Leopard - Snow Leopard would be better if your computer can handle it; it requires Intel.

    Hi All: My iPhone will not sync with iCal. This is a direct USB connection, no MobileMe involved. There is no error message; the Mac apparently just does not "see" events on the iPhone. I've changed the synching prefs from "Sync all calendars," to "Sync selected calendars" (and checking all of my calendars), back to "Sync all calendars"--and the iPhone info simply does not show on the desktop Calendar.


    I suspect I've done something stupid with some checkbox someplace. Any ideas?


    System info:

    Mac OS 10.6.7

    iTunes 10

    iOS 4.3.3

    Mac Pro 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    What do you expect if you tack onto a year-old thread which discusses connection problems to a service which has since been discontinued? If you have a problem, please start a new thread and explain your problem clearly and in detail, remembering to post your system version and any other relevant details.
