    I've been trying to sync my iPod with Outlook 2003...

    I checked the box in iTunes to "Synchronize calendars from Microsoft Outlook." When I try to sync my iPod, an Outlook dialog pops up telling me that "a program is trying to access data from Outlook...allow access..." and I click Yes. Then iTunes gives me the following generic error message:

    "The iPod 'IPOD' cannot be updated. An unknown error occurred (-50)."

    Pictures seem to sync just fine. Anybody have any success?

    It worked for me with no problems, beyond having to click "Yes" in Outlook in order to allow iTunes to access it.

    Same problem here...

    I believe it has to do with iTunes synching *all* appointments in Calendar therefore if you have appointments that have multiple occurences then it simply wont work.

    Anybody have any luck yet. I'm getting the same error. Nobody at Mac can help cause they say it's an Outlook problem. I would guess outlook would say it's not their problem... Is it the multipe events? I'd hate to get rid of all those birthdays etc...

    Somebody help us! ha. I really want to show off all features on this puppy.

    Cached Exchange Mode Solution

    If you are using Outlook 2003, try turning of the Cached Exchange Mode option if you are using Outlook with an Exchange Server. I was getting the -50 problem, and it went away once I turned off this option. Here's where you go in Outlook to turn it off:

    1. Tools
    2. E-mail Accounts
    3. View or Change Existing E-mail Accounts
    4. Next
    5. Change
    6. Uncheck the box labeled "Use Cached Exchange Mode"
    7. Next
    8. Finish
    9. Close and Reopen Outlook
    10. Sync your iPod again and it should work now.

    This helps in getting rid of Outlook's annoying allow access message... http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security

    It's an add-in that gives you the message once and tells you what program is accessing Outlook too.
