The icon in the Finder window for idisk now just spins and spins and I cannot access its content.

Disconnecting from the network doesn't resolve the issue either - iDisk just goes on spinning and spinning.

Any fixes out there?

    HI,

    Open System Preferences/MobileMe then click the Account tab.

    If you are signed in already, click the "Sign Out" button on the right, then sign back in.

    Then try accessing your iDisk.

    If you did not repair disk permissions after updating 10.6.3, then do that now.

    Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Have you tried the Finder menu item Go -> iDisk -> My iDisk?
