    I am trying to sync my calendars(ical). The sync only goes back two months on the touch so I can't check days I worked in August. Everything shows on my mac. I would like to be able to see everything on my touch. I have mobile me and I sync with computer through usb.
    Any help?

    Thanks,
    m

    You have to do it on the iPod touch:

    Settings > Mail, Cont., Cal. > scroll down to Calendars > Sync > choose "All events" :)

    Update

    Thanks for reply. I went "Settings > Mail, Cont., Cal. > scroll down to Calendars >" and my choices were "New Invitation Alerts(On or Off): Time Zone Support: or Default Calendar. I have 1st Gen iPod touch version 3.1.2 .

    I then on inspiration when into iTunes. I went into the info tab of my iPod. There I unchecked the "Do not sync events older than ___ days old." I now have complete data in iCal on Touch.

    I have only had my mac for a year and I'm still learning.

    I slowly start to understand. :eek::)

    You're syncing your iPod touch differently than I do. I never sync iCal via iTunes to the iPod touch.

    I sync iCal to the Mobile Me cloud and I sync my iPod touch to the MM cloud as well. It works flawlessly, but I ask myself: Should I do it like you? Would that be faster? Would it save bandwith? :confused:

    That's not the point. I didn't buy Mobile Me because of the sync option alone, of course. The question remains: Would it be faster chutney's way? Is it more reliable my way?

    I would think its the other way around. Wirelessly syncing with Mobile Me is faster, since as soon as your touch can contact the servers it can get updates. It might be more reliable, too, since you can't forget to sync. But keeping WiFi on all the time drains the battery faster, requiring you to recharge more often. And if you recharge from the USB port on your computer, you are getting more iTunes syncs, too.

    Thanks for your reply. I hadn't thought of the drainage of the battery. On the other hand: It's not that big a problem since the iPod's battery is never empty in the evening. After two years of daily use, it still last long enough. :)

    sync ipod touch to ical

    thanks for all the above.
    I've only had my ipod touch for two weeks.

    My ical is useless if I can't sync events i've entered while on the road with the iCal on my iMac.

    Is there a way to do this?
