My I also add, seeing as I can't edit my original posting, that the calendars in iCal on my iPod Touch are showing up as subscribed but I now believe they are .ics files. Is my iPod Touch refreshing directly from the Web Site that supplied the .ics files? I think it may be and if so how can I make this occur in iCal on my desktop?
Problem has been resolved. I believe the iPod Touch added the calendar as www...... where as iCal desktop requires http://www....... Note I don't think I manually typed in the addresses on my iPod Touch but I don't know, perhaps I did.
