    The title says it all.

    The problem started when I installed Snow Leopard about a week after its release. It says that it's syncing with MM, but nothing is happening. The status icon just keeps spinning and spinning and spinning -- nothing is being synced.

    Any of you having similar problems? Anyone know how to fix this?:confused:

    Definitely not normal. Stop the sync and go into MM prefs and reset the sync settings and try again. Make sure all your data is backed up first.

    Mine did the same thing, and the icon would stop spinning as soon as you'd click on it. I'm thinking it's a bug with the icon, as everything seemed to be synced correctly. It seemed to behave after a couple of days (perhaps after the 10.6.1 update?)

    I signed out of MobileMe under System Prefs and de-authorized my computer. It seems to be working now. It syncs for about one minute then stops spinning. YAY!!! :D
