Does anyone else have the problem that their iPod doesn't sync properly with iCal? I'm running Panther with a 4G iPod and up until recently it had all the days out by one. It changed about a week ago (when I reformatted my iPod) but now everything is running half an hour earlier than it should.

I've had a look around on the forums but I can't find anything like this. Is it just me?

Any help would be hugely appreciated because this is quite annoying. :(

The only thing I can think of is that your iPod (or, not likely, iCal) is stuck on a wrong timezone (there are some half timezones), but it seems like a long shot...

...of cource the clock is correct on both, right...? ;)

Thanks Mitthrawnuruodo.

Yeah, the clock's fine on both which is weird. My time-zone for my iPod is Tokyo which is about 1.5hrs behind but my actual time-zone doesn't appear as one of the options. The time-zone support option in iCal is disabled (by default). This is really weird, all the times in iCal are correct but they're just not syncing with the iPod well. I don't have anything else to sync which is a shame because I could work out if it's my mac or my iBook. :(

Try enableing the timezone in iCal, and set it to the same as your iPod (I would change both to somewhere nearer to my own...)

You CHAMPION! :D :D
Yeah, that fixed it. It's a shame the iPod doesn't have more time-zones. You'd think they'd account for Australia! :rolleyes:

No problem... :)

Coming from a small European country outside EU, I can understand your frustration of being left out, sometimes (all though we haven't got that particular problem, as we share time zone with e.g. Paris and Berlin... ;))
