Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2009 10:19 AM (in response to Michael Wall1)This is clearly a bug within this version of snow leopard. It was working perfectly fine before the installation.Mac Pro Intel Xenon Eight Core 2.8 MHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 3 TB HD 6GBRAM NVIDIA 8800 512MB VRAM
Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2009 10:46 AM (in response to Foo Fighters)I started a chat session with the mobileme support team but had to break off before I finished. They had me log out of my account and log in to their test account, and create a new user and log in as the new user. Nothing worked yet. If I get a chance later I'll try it again. It takes so long to do it by chat.MacBook 15 Unibody, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2009 2:40 PM (in response to Michael Wall1)Same problem but I resolved it by:
Going to my home folder/library/filesynch and deleting the folder. I then rebooted and and went to system preferences/mobileme/prefs/idisk and started the synch process. I am synching as we speak. This is a bit draconian but this appears to do the job.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 30, 2009 6:54 AM (in response to Foo Fighters)I resolved my issue by reverting to a clone of my drive before I installed SN and removing a couple of apps that are incompatible with SN: cocktail, & istat. I then did the simple install and everything works and seem quicker as well. The one thing I forgot to do before the install was repair permissions again but I did it afterward with no problem.

Ever since I installed Snow Leopard, my iDisk has been a problem. If I simply click on iDisk from Finder I get this message:
*Your iDisk is unavailable.*
Make sure you are logged in to your MobileMe account, and then try again to access your iDisk.
Well, I made sure I was logged into mobileme from system preferences. I signed out, signed in, reset sync services from mobileme preferences.
That is not a Snow Leopard issue. That has been an ongoing problem even with Leopard. I constantly got that error a few times a week. Logging out of MobileMe and back in solved it.
What is really annoying about the iDisk is how slow it is in the Finder, both with Leopard and Snow Leopard. It is very responsive using the web access (me.com), but extremely slow in the Finder.iMac (Early 2008) Intel 24" 2.8 GHz, PowerBook G4 15" Titanium 867 MHz, Mac OS X (10.6), iMac G5 (iSight) 20" 2.1 GHz, Power Mac LC 575, PowerBook 540c, Duo 230, 2300c
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2009 3:01 AM (in response to wardie)Same problem - deleting the sync files, logging out etc. do not work for me when trying to mount the iDisk.... the iDisk works fine on web based MobileMe, my iPhone and my old G5. Any chance of resolving the bug, Apple...MacBook/other, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2009 3:55 PM (in response to Foo Fighters)Same problem here. I can access my iDisk via http://idisk.mac.com/ and via MobileMe, but not via the Finder. This on a recent MacMini running 10.6.2. The other machines on my LAN can connect via the Finder. I was with a MobileMe support tech for a long time. His final suggestion was to repair permissions and reboot. That did not work.G4 iMac 17", G4 PowerBook 12",G3 iBook 12", Intel Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2009 6:48 PM (in response to Buadhai)Here's how I solved this problem:
Instead of entering my user name I tried entering my full MobileMe e-mail address as the user name. This enabled me to connect to the iDisk via the Finder.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 21, 2010 1:42 PM (in response to Panayotis Kammenos)It is in some ways a relief to find this thread - now I know it is not just me having these problems. But I am very frustrated with APPLE's inability to support or sort this. I have tried all of the above and it has got me nowhere - so I posted the following on various forums but so far have not recieved any helpful advice.
After 4 hours of phone calls and online chat with Apple I am here to ask the EXPERTS - Please help
I cannot access iDisk through finder - either off the icon bar to the left or via GO. I get one of two messages - iDisk is not available, or after being presented with a login window I get a message saying I have used the wrong username/password.
Now here is the thing
1. I am logged in correctly in System Preferences
2. I can sync
3. I can upload via iWeb
4. I can login over the net
5. I can login on my G4 Laptop (through Finder)
6. I can access my public area no problem (through finder)
BUT I CANNOT LOG ON TO MAIN iDISK AT ALL
This is now also effecting my use of SOE Tools so I cannot update iWeb headers and keywords anymore.
I run an Imac and have updated to Snow Leopard in the last week (perhaps that is the problem?)
Any new ideas would be great
