Syncing Ical

Can somebody please tell me a way to move Ical entries on my laptop running 10.3 to my desktop running 10.4 and vice versa? Apparently, Ical is the only application that cannot sync through .Mac between different operation systems.
Thanks,
Sande

The pop-up error message tells me to re-set my calendars, but to do that I have to synch to .mac, and it won't let me synch because of 'inconsistent data'.
I have managed to make one computer work by deciding that it is correct and replacing all .Mac iCal info with that computer's iCal info.
So surely now, if I replace my other computers' iCal info with .Mac iCal info, they should be overwritten to match the first computer? But no, they all get the 'inconsistent data' error.
I'm scared to synch now even if I could because the one set of true data might be overwritten.
Help, anyone?

    I have a problem syncing iCal on my Macbook air (10.7.5) and my iPhone 4s (5.1.1) over iCloud. The following server error message comes up "The request (CalDAVAccountRefreshQueueableOperation) for account “iCloud” failed." Been to Apple Store - no luck instore, or with Super genius over the phone when with genius in store, taking data in real time via ethernet!
    I had to do a full wipe of my system because of time machine back up issues 2 weeks ago, and the error has only occured at some point since then. I only did a drag and drop of my user account folders/files into an External HDD rather than a copy of my user account (advised by the staff in store at Apple to do this) and when reimported, the Mail folders are all present but each message is in a sub-sub-sub folder that is numerically named. I do not have a mirror image of the hard disk prior to the wipe, only a time machine back up from 2 weeks prior to it being done. I am uncertain if this reinstall has caused the issue. 
    I am not happy to upgrade the software in my iPhone until I have the calendars working. I have purchased Mountain Lion, but again am concerned about upgrading until the issues are sorted.
    I have tried the other solutions on here with no luck. HELP please.
    Many Thanks.

    Progress Update.
    I made a back of what existing phtos and Videos I had on my Iplhone.  I used Image capture to do this making an entire back up of photos and videoa that were still intact on the phone.
    Image capture is god for this purpose, as it does exactly what you ask it to do without applying any rules or squishing the files back into iphote (which might also be corupted) 
    Image capture wil do the basic function of retriving the contents of the phone and save them as native files on your hard drive.
    Once I did this I erased my iphone, and re intitialised it restoring an older back up from icloud.
    As the retore was happneing - I did retreive the missing files that cuased the intial beviour as above, and I could play the videos that were missing in the above scenerio.  The wierd ting was however that even though the source files were now back on the device, the thumbnail previews were missing. Where I ahd balck thumb nails for server portions of the resotred content.
    I then went to bed as the restore is a long process.  When I woke up the library had library had cleaned itself up.  Mysteriously the prcess had deleted the files missing the their thumbnails.
    This is very perculiar and bad behavior.
    I am now repeating the process, and will attempt to download the missing content as it is restored and prior to the phone trying to fix itself.
    Here are the lessons learned.
    DO NOT rely on Photo Stream to keep back ups and synchornise videos from you IOS device. IT DOES NOT SUPPORT THIS CAPBILITY
    DO NOT rely on iCloud Back Up alone - always fd an occassional iTunes back up or more reliably still always take a back up of photos and video files using Image Capture to be doubly sure that you a have backd up any content.
    DO THIS NOW - dont wait to loose your phone ofr have your phone repaired by replacement at the apple Store.  (I did both :-(

  • How to sync ical with multiple apple devices and android?

    Does anybody have use an android phone in addition to apple devices, and have you figured out how to sync ical with all? (I know there are other calendars that can be used by all, but it means a lot to my husband to stay with ical.)

    I tried Yahoo in the past but had trouble with duplicate entries. However, this was a while ago before Yahoo updated their site and this was with syncing to a Windows computer with Outlook in addition to a Mac so my results might not be typical. Yahoo's worth a shot, but my experience with Yahoo is why I use Google Calendar.
    Beyond that, I don't know of any other "free" services. There are many other hosted calendar sites that could work, but you'd pay something like $5-$20 per month, which is comparable to MobileMe.

  • How do i sync ical with my other computer

    I need to sync iCal on my two mac computers and am not sure how to do it.

    iCloud will probably solve this issue once it gets released. Meanwhile, you can sync one of them with Google Calender first, then sync Google Calender with the others. I'm quite sure this will work.

    How do I sync iCal on my mac with OS 8 devices

    Hi jgiolma,
    Since you do not mention what version of the Mac operating system you are running on your MacBook Pro it is a little hard to answer your question. For computers running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 or later one way to sync your calendars would be to use iCloud. See this article for minimum system requirements for iCloud -
    System requirements for iCloud
    Information on using iCloud for your calendars can be found here -
    iCloud: Calendar overview and
    iCloud: Using iCloud Calendars with Calendar and iCal
    More general information about iCloud is available here -

    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.

  • Have thunderbolt and need to sync ical with google calendar in order to use.  Any suggestions?

    Have a thunderbolt and MacBook.  Need to sync ical with google calendar as thunderbolt supports google calendar.  Any suggestions?

    I think we may be talking about two different things. Thunderbolt is the new two way display port on Mac Book Pros and Apple displays.
    Thunderbolt (originally codenamed Light Peak) is an interface for connecting peripheral devices to a computer via an expansion bus. Thunderbolt was developed by Intel and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple Inc. It was introduced commercially on Apple's updated MacBook Pro lineup on February 24, 2011.
    Thunderbolt combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into a serial data interface. A single Thunderbolt port supports hubs as well as a daisy chain of up to seven Thunderbolt devices; up to two of these devices may be high-resolution displays using DisplayPort. You can move data to and from peripherals up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800.

  • How do i sync ical with google calendar, in that direction

    i have google cal and ical syncset up but it was set up by google telling what to enter into ical. this made my other calendars, all the google calendars i have other than the main one, into "delegates" on ical.
    whats the reason or process for this? cant they just been normal calendars on ical?
    the reason i ask is that i have a menu pull down app which seems to only read "normal" calendars and not delegated calendars...
    can i sync ical to google cal but enter details into ical to sync with google rather than the other way round?

    So if I make calendar entry in my iphone it syncs to my mac ical but not icloud.
    If everything is set to use iCloud then it's impossible for data to get from the iPhone to the mac but not iCloud, since all the data actually resides on iCloud and is read from there by devices. It rather sounds as if you have some syncing going on iTunes. If you look at the calendar listing on your Mac and Phone they must be listed under iCloud, not 'On My Mac/iPhone' - is that the case?

    I was easy to manage it on my iPhone (I just add a new "exchange" mail account and ask for a calendar sync only) and it worked very quickly.

    the domain is is used for my iPhone is the following :

    and change

  • Many years ago synced iCal with Microsoft program. Since installing Lion whenever I try to create an event in iCal it flashes up message "Unable to open Microsoft sync services Power PC applications no longer supported." How do I get rid of message?

    Many years ago synced iCal with Microsoft program. Since installing Lion whenever I try to create an event in iCal it flashes up message "Unable to open Microsoft sync services Power PC applications no longer supported." How do I get rid of message?

    Lion no longer supports PowerPC apps. If this is Microsoft Office 2008 (Entourage 2008) then you should disable the syncing services.  (I don't have Office 2008 installed anymore so I don't know exactly what it's called anymore.)  If you have Microsoft Office 2004 or earlier, then it can't be run on Lion at all since Lion removed Rosetta, which is what allowed a PPC app to run on an Intel based Mac.
    Also, I believe Microsoft removed sync services from the current Outlook 2011 (which replaces Entourage) so even upgrading to a newer version of Microsoft Office will not get you back that calendar sync feature.  Supposedly Microsoft is working on a new syncing system, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

  • I recently installed a new hard drive in a MacBook 2007 and then 10.6.3. I'd like to be able to Sync iCal to the calendars I have created on other devices (new iCloud account and an ME account). I can't upgrade to 10.7 or 10.8 because the MacBook is 32bit

    I recently installed a new hard drive in a MacBook 2007 and then 10.6.3. I'd like to be able to Sync iCal to the calendars I have created on other devices (new iCloud account and an ME account). I can't upgrade to 10.7 or 10.8 because the MacBook is 32 bit. Just looking for a workaround as this is not a primary device.

    You should update to the latest version of Snow Leopard, 10.6.8 - you can download it here; however it's still not compatible with iCloud and though you can connect to access your email you cannot access any other of iCloud's facilities.
    However some people have been able to set up calendar syncing by using the method detailed here - this is an unsupported hack and may not be reliable, and may stop working at some future point. I've not tried it: use at your own discretion.
    To access the email:
    Entering iCloud email settings manually in Snow Leopard or Leopard
    Are you sure you can't upgrade to Lion? It requires an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, which you may well have, though it also needs 2GB RAM so you might need to add additional RAM (might not be worth it for what you want). The published specs don't mention 32 or 64 bit. You can buy Lion by ringing the Apple Store at the number at bottom left of this page.

  • Why is syncing ical not working with mobile me?

    I have been having 2 macbook pros and a new imac sync ical, mail and address book.  The imac is on Lion, the laptops are 10.6.8.  They were syncing fine until a week or so ago.  Is this because the 2 are not Lion?  I am using mobileme, not yet switched to the cloud, mostly because not sure I want to use my 2 other uses of Lion on older laptops.  And I will have ot upgrade some software on them.  I need this calendar info to sync regularly!

    May I add, this is the answer I get When I try to Download Adobe Flash Player
    You get the message because that is exactly the situation. Apple has not allowed any Flash on iOS devices.
    What site are you trying to see? Many sites now provide Flash alternatives. For example, if you want to listen to Pandora, instead of using the Flash on the Pandora website, instead you download the Pandora app for the iPad.
    In the future, even if Apple wants to add Flash to the iPad, it won't be able to because Adobe will no longer be making it at all, for any mobile device:

    If you often go to sites that use a lot of Flash and they don't have an alternative, you should write to them and tell them to stop using Flash.

  • How do you sync iCal on my iMac to my iPad?

    How do you sync iCal on my iMac to my iPad?

    Hi Patti,
    You need to use a server calendar system like on iCloud or Google Calendar. You could alternatively connect your iPad to the computer and use iTunes to sync calendars.

  • Syncing iCal to iPod duplicate entries different dates

    I'm trying to sync iCal events with my iPod nano (2nd Gen) using iTunes 7.3. However, each calendar event appears twice--once on the actual date, and once to the follow date. The duplicate events do not appear in iCal, only on the iPod. How can I stop these duplicate events from being created on the iPod?

  • Reliability of Syncing iCal on different computers

    I am wondering if anyone can comment on how reliable it is to Sync iCal info on 2 or 3 different computers over .Mac. One computer is running 10.4.2 and the other one 10.3.9. Even when things look like they are working fine, after a few days, something goes wrong and one of the compuers stops being able to Sync the iCal data or it never finishes or there are errors etc. It's usually the 10.4.2 that screws up. The Calendar being synced is a huge one, 5.7 mb, but that should not matter. I am beginning to wonder if the iCal syncing amongs different computers is really good enough for heavy duty use or is it just for light, home use.

    Hi Thomas,
    Welcome to Apple Discussions.
    First, I think it is fair to say that iCal .Mac syncing was really designed for the single user with a couple of Macs. But that doesn't mean it can't work for something more robust. There are people who are doing as you are with no problem (but perhaps not with as much data). And there are folks reporting problems syncing between Tiger and Panther (makes sense to me). And other folks reporting problems syncing period.
    If you had been following threads here, you'd see that there seems to be a problem sometimes with iCal and iSync so if that's in the picture (has to be for Panther) than perhaps that's part of your problem. See the thread for more info: Patricia W, "iCal "Unexpectedly" Quitting after iTunes 5.0.1 install" #29, 10:59am Sep 25, 2005 CDT
    I know that doesn't answer your question, but know that some folks are doing what you want with no problem.

  • Need help syncing iCal and Outlook 2011 (for Mac) THANKS!

    QUESTION: How do I sync iCal and Outlook up again without duplicating any more events, and very importantly, without sending any more email invitations?
    I just bought an iPhone. I am trying to get my phone and my MacBook Pro synced up through iCloud.
    I realize that I need to have Outlook 2011 and iCal set up for syncing for this to work.
    I did this at one point, and it resulted in all of my ALL DAY appointments being duplicated in Outlook, iCal, and on the calendar on my phone - and iCloud sending out duplicate invitations to events.
    Then, I turned syncing between iCal and Outlook and deleted all of the duplicates in my Outlook.
    Of course, because I haven't set up Outlook to sync with iCal, iCal and my phone's calendar have not changed. There are still duplicates there.
    How do I sync them up again without duplicating any more events, and very importantly, without sending any more email invitations?
    Thanks in advance for any help you can be!
    Cheers!

    My iPhone 4 was working fine, synched with Outlook 2011 on my iMac 11.02 through iTunes. Calendar changes also appeared in iCal, even though I don't use iCal - I only use Outlook. Last week I was prompted to update Outlook, which I did successfully. Today, I plugged the iPhone into the iMac to synch and suddenly all Calendar and Contact items are gone from the iPhone and in iCal on the iMac. In iTunes, the option to synch with Outlook in the Info tab ("other") is greyed out. What happened? Why can't I synch the iPhone anymore with Outlook? All the Calendar and Contact info is still on the iMac in Outlook. Help!
