So ages ago when I got my 80GB Classic I thought it would be cool to sync my calendar. In light of my iPhone4 I no longer need to do this on my iPod. How do I remove these calendar reminders from my iPod? When I connect it to iTunes I do see the option of synching calendar choices, but none that actually removes that info from the iPod, which now hurls long out of date (or obsolete) recurring reminders every damned morning.

In the INFO tabe I have not clicked Sync calendars - but it still retains all of the old info.

Help!

Thanks

So - if I tremblingly "opt to restore my iPod to factory settings via iTunes and start from scratch" I assume it wipes ALL of my music and I will need to sync all of it again. Not that huge an issue as I do have it all in my iTunes Library.=


Yes. That is correct.

I am guessing that is my best option....?


At this point, yes.

    Hello Theo,

    So you removed the tick mark from the *Sync Calendars* option? If so, did you hit the Apply button afterwards to sync the updated changes to your iPod?

    If nothing else, you can always opt to restore your iPod to factory settings via iTunes and start from scratch.

    Well.....

    I ticked SYNC CALENDARS but did not actually select any SPECIFIC calendar and hit apply. It in fact dutifully synced my calendar to my iPod regardless.

    Joy.

    It's late but there in case someone else stumbles across this question there is a better solution.

     

    If Enable Disk Use is not checked in the iPod summary in iTunes then check it and hit Apply.

     

    Go to the iPod icon in Finder (or My Computer) and double click. There are folders for Contacts, Calendars and Notes. Open each of them, trash the enclosed items and empty the trash.

     

    Problem solved.
