Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2007 1:20 PM (in response to Rshrieve)Thanks for sharing! I'm having an issue with Leopard and a Palm Z 22. I have an iMac G5 running Tiger as well as a .Mac Account so I can use your workaround to iSync. This has been a frustrating & time consuming issue.PowerBook G4 12", Mac OS X (10.5), 1.5 GHz - 1.25 DDR SDRAM
Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2007 4:38 AM (in response to Rshrieve)Heck I'm glad I found that out, I have Leopard on my iMac and was about to install on the macbook - which I use to sync with a Treo 680.
Will Apple bring out a fix for iSync do you think?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2007 4:26 PM (in response to Tassiecelt)Hi Graham,
Who knows whether Apple will fix the problem of Leopard not being able sync with Palm OS devices...
If you are cynical, you could say this is a ploy to get us all to switch to the iphone, couldn't you?
I have not seen anything from Apple saying they recognize this problem and are working on it.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2007 5:17 PM (in response to Rshrieve)I did the same thing to solve the problem as I have a PB that I used to sync with the Treo 700p I have and through the .Mac account I keep them al happy. If you sync in Leopard you my lose all your address book on the Treo which happened to me a couple of times until I really understood what was going on. But, Apple isn't fixing this as I stated in another thread I created on the subject:
I subsequently found out that the Palm OS synching conduit is stil there in Leopard's iSync 3.0 but is now unpredictable.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 23, 2007 10:25 AM (in response to Rshrieve)I started up iSync, selected my Sprint Treo700p on the device list, then selected "Force slow synchronization" All of my changes were made as expected.
Didn't have to reinstall anything!

Currently Being ModeratedDec 13, 2007 6:08 PM (in response to sgtroxtc)I too followed the directions in isync and the sync worked fine (with a Treo 700p). However, ical is less comprehensive than the Palm calendar -- ical lacks times for the calendar events on the monthly view, unless I'm missing something. I'm not sure of the advantage of ical.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2007 10:46 AM (in response to DC Steve)I am having no luck with any of this. I have tried everything for many hours and to no avail. isync simply gives me a NULL error. It doesn't send either my calendar or my contacts. I just bought a new Treo 700p, and I cannot get a single thing to sync through isync. I am contemplating just returning it and waiting for the fix, unless someone can give me any solution to this. There is no way I want to go back to using the Palm Desktop.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 30, 2007 10:32 AM (in response to Rshrieve)Rich -- Thanks for the post. I'd be interested in the details about the synching of the G4 powerbook running Tiger, with the Treo. Sorry to seem dim at this, but... cable/bluetooth and any further info on how to set both ends of the comm, would be appreciated. (Whatever detail you have patience to provide, at you convenience.)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 3, 2008 5:36 AM (in response to Rshrieve)The oddest thing happened like the rest of you I could not get my Leopard machine to recognize my Treo 700/p using Bluetooth. The Treo would recognize the Mac though, so i finally just moved forward through the menus on the Treo to synch expecting it to fail an voila it went ahead and synched! Don't know if it matters but I had the Bluetooth on the Mac in Discoverable mode when it happened, and it never came up and confirmed finding the Treo.
Makes absolutely no sense to me, but now the Treo has the Mac in the Hotsync menu and get this if you have the Mac Bluetooth on Discoverable, you cannot sync, turn that off hit Hotsync on the Treo and presto it synchs!MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1), eMac
