Since July 31, my Notes no longer sync. New notes added on the iPod no longer appear in Mail; and a (test) new note I created on the Mac doesn’t appear on the iPod. Changes made to existing notes on the iPod after about 3 pm on July 31 also don’t appear on the Mac.

I’m using iTunes 8.2.1; Mail 3.6; Leopard 10.5.7.

I tried going to iPhone, deselecting the choice to sync Notes, click apply, then reselected the choice to sync Notes and clicked Apply again. Said it was syncing, but as I mentioned, no sync of Notes actually took place.

I have only 18 notes on the iPod; longest is probably 700-1000 characters, so none are terribly long.

I suppose I can email my notes to myself, but I really enjoyed the syncing feature. Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

Mac Pro dual core, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

    If you haven't already update to the latest version of Mac OS X 10.5.8. You can update by clicking the Apple logo> Software update.

    If calendar events are not syncing from the iPhone to iCal on your mac, try Resetting the Sync History as described here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TA23030
    Then enable calendar syncing in iTunes and choose the Merge option on the initial sync.

    This article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2481 provides additional advanced troubleshooting tips that may help, if the issue persists.

    Thanks for the links (which I’ve saved for another time, they’re useful).

    Either upgrading t0 10.5.8, or conceivably just the reboot that was involved (I realized finally that rebooting was one thing I hadn’t tried), solved the problem.
