hi there,

has anyone ever seen this "Synchronzation Failed" error from iCal ???
i tried erasing my data on my computer then re-syncing, but the error persists. other computers can sync to the same account no problem. repairing permissions does not help.

the full error reads:
Can't synchronize calendars and To Do items to iCal: device is not available
Conduit Backup Conduit generated an internal error NSArchiverArchiveInconsistency (*** NSUnarchiver: inconsistency between written and read data for object 0x1f3a30): can't get synchronizer for calendars and To Do items.
Can't synchronize calendars and To Do items to Backup Conduit: device is not available


any ideas ? all insight is appreciated.

me too

I've been getting the exact same error message for some time now - glad to see I'm not alone. everything actually seems to sync fine, but I get the message every time it automatically syncs (every hour, and isync doesnt quit automatically - annoying more than anything). I've reinstalled the system software (for an unrelated problem) and reinstalled isync and ical - same results. I posted a query on the apple discussion site, but so far no responses.

hope someone knows!

I got a slightly similar one recently when I was trying to sync my iPod. Don't get me started on the issues with iSync! :mad:

Hopefully it'll all be fine when Tiger comes out. Fingers crossed...
