    I get only some Contacts and iCal events transferring.

    You have set it up incorrectly and/or are looking at content (on your phone for exampe) that is not in the iCloud account.

     

    Go to www.icloud.com and look at the data stored there, then compare it with the iCloud account content on your iThings and your Mac, take care to ONLY compare the iCloud calendar (on your phone for example) as the phone can and will display local calendars etc on one screen if you chose to view 'All Calendars' Repeat for all devices until you know what is where. (A simple method is to disconnect from iCloud on your phone eg and see if any data is left, if it is then it is not in the iCloud account)

    Push the calendars button (top left) and check to see which calendar they are in, your iPod can have more than one.

     

    Done and checked all that. I have All Calendars Checked. You can see that it reports 11 calendars on the top of my iPod screensnap.

     

    Peter

    So, which of the 11 calendars are the items displayed contained in?

     

    Do not use 2 connection methods, iCloud, or iTunes, both is a recipe for duplication after duplication.

     

    11 calendars is all calendars.

     

    I only used iTunes to push the sync because it wasn't syncing correctly. iTunes is a poor method, but the only one to hand if all else fails.

     

    iCloud should be renamed HouseOfCards IMHO.

    It says Single User $99.99.

    That's new then, it was for 2 users, so now it's more expensive, but it still works.

     

    I do have ML on my iMac. But mostly I run SL, Lion was a joke, no way I'd run that. I only run ML to get access to ML specific apps, of which there are unfortunately too many.

    If you want to use SL and iCloud you will need some iCloud clients, I know of 2 that will run on SL. Soho and BusyCal (calendars only), there is no other path at this time (or ever as I don't see Apple adding iCloud support to SL) but more clients may appear sometime in the future.

    ML is not the solution anyway as it is not fully syncing either.

    iCloud is a Dav service, there is no sync. ML works perfectly with iCloud, my calendars and contacts are on 5 different devices, each one stays current and I can add or remove to any of them and it will replicate almost at once on any other (provided there is an internet connection) This includes Android, IOS Windows and Mac devices.

     

    But with SL in the loop and multiple pathways involved I am not surprised that it doesn't work in your case.

     

    Use Google instead.

    You have to read what I wrote. It is an iPod Touch not an iPhone for a start.

     

    I have set up iCloud as instructed in SL (iCloud.com) and ML (System Preferences) and I know perfectly well what is in the iCloud sync, not everything (but no duplication).

     

    That is the problem I have outlined. It is not syncing fully from ML and currently not at all from SL but it must have earlier to get the data it has.

     

    I must not be "holding it right"!

    11 calendars is all calendars.

    That does not address my question in any manner at all.

  • PeterBreis0807 Level 7 Level 7 (33,560 points)

    Yes it does.

     

    11 calendars is all calendars, I had them all checked in the iPod settings.

     

    To double check I clicked on All Calendars and get exactly the same thing.

    SL can not be setup to sync with iCloud, whatever you may think. It has no clients (AB and iCal are not iCloud clients on SL) your statement above is incorrect.

    Not relevant, it is either an iCloud client or it is not, phones pods and pads are exactly the same, they support iCloud, or they don't

    Use Google. ML works, SL doesn't, the common factor here is the operator.

    As I understand Csouind1's question does every one of the 11 calendars have an event showing on your iPhone? Not is all of them checked/enabled.

     

    Is this correct, Csound1?

  • Csound1 Level 8 Level 8 (44,275 points)

    Are you saying that all 11 calendars are in the iCloud account (on the ipod), Not in the On My iPod account or some other online service, yes or no, you have not made that clear at all.

     

    Here is a simple test. On your iPod: sign out of iCloud, any events that display in Calendars after that are in a different account.

    iPods can have multiple sources for the calendars they display, iCloud can be among them, I just want to know WHERE these calendars are, iCloud, On My iPod, Google, Exchange etc are all candidates and all appear in the All Calendars view.

  • PeterBreis0807 Level 7 Level 7 (33,560 points)

    The calendar events are missing from the iPad Touch. All calendars is all there is.

     

    The events are present in Address Book (SL) which has 5 calendars and 2 subscriptions. All listed below.

     

    My iPod Touch shows: 5 calendars, the 4 below + "Calendar".

     

    iCloud shows: 4 (Home, Work, 2 Workshops) appear in iCloud. But not "Calendar".

     

    Other shows: Birthdays.

    Go to the iCloud website, enter one new 'test' event, then locate it on the clients, it should appear on one calendar in each client, if it does not there is no connection between that specific client and the Cloud server. If it appears on more than one calendar on any client note exactly where its locations are.

    On the face of it the Calendar called Calendar is local to the iPod and is not on iCloud.

    It is also in iCal in SL. How would it make the leap and not go via iCloud?

     

    I have booked a session with a "Genius" we'll see what eventuates.

    Hi Roger,

     

    It is also possible (but not free) to install Soho Organizer on Snow Leopard, then you can 'sync' iCloud contacts and calendars.

    Indeed, and it's mentioned in my page which I referred Peter to:

     

    iCloud and Snow Leopard

     

    BusyCal no longer works on Snow Leopard (except for people who had the previous version, which is only available to them).
