Itunes 7.7  IPod Touch 2.0 - Will not sync calendars with Outlook 2003

All was fine until I upgraded both my Itunes to 7.7 and the IPod Touch firmware to 2.0. My Outlook Calendars and Contacts sync'ed perfect back and forth between Outlook on my XP machine and my Touch.
Now calendars will not synch. I've spent a day searching the web for answers and have tried all the suggestions. No luck.
Why is Apple blantantly ignoring this problem? I'm not the only person in the universe with this issue. Do a Google search - it's an epidemic.

YES!!! Finally, someone else is seeing this. And, for the record, they aren't "bugs", they are "undocumented features". Seriously, though, I had this problem with my podcasts not syncing right and it turned out that there was a new "feature" that would add podcasts to your iPod if they showed up in a playlist (and a few of my Smart Playlists had podcasts in them). Anyway, my point is, I'm wondering if there's not just some new setting or "feature" that we're all overlooking. It took weeks before someone came up with the answer on the podcast question. And the fact that contacts are syncing right means that it is AT LEAST communicating with Outlook. I thought at first it had something to do with the "push" setting, but turning that off didn't change anything...
What have you tried?

    my ipod touch 3rd gen will not sync to pc.itunes file menu sync my ipod is greyed out.and i cant sync or put any new songs.please help me.

    I've gotten the iPod to sync after restoring it and not changing ANY of the music sync settings.  I didn't even click "sync music", I just have it on manual and clicked autofill. 
    After it synced all of the music successfully, I tried to sync a playlist (my recently added), and it's gone bonkers again, it won't sync the playlist's music, or any new music now.

  • Ipod touch 3rd generation will not sync to any computers, help

    Ipod touch 3rd generation will not sync to my laptop, tried everything I can think of except getting new usb cable.  Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Well, even bought the usb cable today and that didn't help.  Guy at Best Buy told my son to reset the ipod to the factory settings; so he did and it wiped everything off the ipod and now he still can't get it to hook up to his laptop so no way to get anything back on the ipod.  Don't know what to do know.  Getting frustrated.

    Hey Oynkus,
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    You state you updated your iMac to OS X 10.8.5.  Did you update iTunes as well?
    If so, you may find the calendar sync options under Info.

  • After Updating to IOS 5, My Ipod Touch 4th Gen will not Sync!!

    I updated my Ipod Touch 4th Gen to the ne IOS yesterday, and as soon as I did, I ran into a BIG problem. It will not Sync up with my Apple content on my Itunes what-so ever. I cannot even install any of my Apps, download my music, nothing! I do not even know what to do at this point!

    Contact a lawyer if you want to sue.
    Otherwise try:
    - Reset the iPod. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • My ipod classic 80 gb will not sync contacts form Outlook in windows 7.  I have tried many suggestions but none work.

    My ipod classic 80 gb will not sync with contacts in outlook in windows 7. It never has synced all contacts but for a while it would sync "All Contacts" if I created a distribution group in Contacts for that purpose.  Now it will not even do that. What can i do ?

    Hi there,
    I would recommend reviewing the process for setting up syncing in iTunes 11. Take a look at the article below for more information.

  • IPod Touch (4th gen) will not sync music after the latest iTunes update

    I'm using iTunes on a PC with Windows 7 and after the latest update (iTunes 11.2.2), it will not sync with my iPod touch 4 (also updated to the latest possible version - iOS 6.1.6).
    Before the update there was no problem with the sync. And this iPod has always been synced only with this computer, and this iTunes library.
    After the iTunes update, several songs on my iPod were greyed out and unplayable (the library plays fine in iTunes).
    Now, when I try to sync, iTunes goes through all the steps, saying it finished syncing, without any error message but there is no actual change on the iPod.
    I've tried deleting all the music on the iPod, to resync the entire music library anew.
    Again, iTunes went through all the steps, finished "syncing" and nothing - and, of course, all the music on my iPod is now missing.
    When I check the "On this iPod" option in iTunes, the entire song list shows up there but appears greyed out and unplayable.
    On the actual iPod device, there is absolutely nothing in the Music app - no songs, no playlists.
    The iPod always shows "no data" in the Music app.
    Sometimes iTunes shows that I have 18GB of music on the device, sometimes it shows 0GB one point it showed "no space available". But it has plenty of space - 23.5 GB of available space out of 32GB.
    To fix this I've tried the following:
    - automatic sync, manual sync, manually adding/deleting songs on the iPod, autofilling and replacing songs;
    - resetting my iPod by holding the (on/off and home buttons) and resetting through the "reset all settings" option on my iPod;
    - reset and restore from backup;
    - uninstalled and re-installed iTunes on my PC.
    - I've run the diagnostics tool in iTunes - all tests passed; various other suggested solutions I have found in the similar topics around here.
    (I've checked and there are no restrictions to the songs, the computer is authorized, etc.)
    Absolutely nothing works and it is very frustrating, as I usually only use the iPod for the music.
    Please help.

  • My iPod Touch and iPad will not sync with iTunes, Windows crashes

    I have done the latest upgrade on software for itunes, upgraded the software on both my ipod touch and ipad and now itunes will not sync.  As soon as it starts the syncing process I get a pop up window (I'm on Windows XP) that says that there's an error and itunes has to shut down.  I ran the diagnostics test and it says there's no error.  Not sure what to do now.

  • IPod touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes, but shows up in Windows 7 64bit(Acer Aspire laptop)

    Hello all, I am writing this message in the hope that somebody can help me to solve my issue with my iPod touch fourth generation. It has been unable to sync with iTunes, but shows up in windows as the iPod touch. I also had this problem with my older iPods as well (Ipod nano 4th Gen, iPod touch 2nd gen(Batteries done for that one)) I can sync music with iCloud, but I have a bunch of songs that are not in the store, and I sincerely want to add those, alot.
    I've checked the "iPod appears in Windows but not in iTunes" with the link here: (, and followed that process, but to no avail, it does not solve the problem. I've tried to reset the entire ipod by making it enter DFU mode and then rebooting the entire iPod (shows up in iTunes in temporary mode) but once restored, does not appear in iTunes, but still in Windows detected still as a iPod, looks like the iPod and everything. I also have the most uup-to-date iTunes installed (10.5 I believe, just got it today)
    This is extremely frustrating because that is why I purchased the iPod (and for the games and apps, those are great too). The iPod was also purchased three days ago, and the setup still didn't detect it.  I am not mad at anybody here or the Apple company itself, but I have not found any help online with the browsing option (for support of course).
    Please, I would absolutely love the help, i'd be eternally grateful for it.

    Never mind, turns out that by uninstalling the programs "Megakey" and "Megaupload" it had resolved this issue.
