With the release of Mac OS X 10.4 more than a year ago, iSync no longer has anything to do with the synchronization of contacts, calendars and tasks with .Mac - that is the responsibility of .Mac Sync. You should probably post you query in the .Mac Sync forum, here:
http://discussions.apple.com/forum.jspa?forumID=957
You may be able to deal with the error message by resetting the Sync Services framework—its truth database, actually—by launching iSync, opening the Preferences… dialog, and pressing the Reset Sync History button. That will leave your data intact and your sync clients registered, but reset the truth database and framework to behave in such a way that your next synchronization event will appear to be the first event you have ever performed.
The 'incomprehensible archive' the error message refers to is likely on your Macintosh.
Before proceeding further, back up your contact and calendar files using the built in provision to do so in both the Address Book and iCal. If resetting the database does not correct your issue, you can launch System Preferences, open the .Mac pane and press the Advanced tab. In the lower left corner is a Reset Sync History button. Press that, and in the dialog which appears, configure .Mac to overwrite the data files for one OS X application on your machine at a time, starting with contacts. Make sure that you overwrite your computer data [which you have just backed up, and can therefore restore if that is necessary] with the data from .Mac.

  • ISync fails - what to do with this error message?

    I set my iMac to autosync everyday at a certain time. I realized that the last sync was 7/27/06, and when I go to Sync tab in the .Mac system preferences, I get the following ".Mac Sync Error" message exactly as follows:
    "* -[NSKeyedUnarchiver initForReadingWithData:]: incomprehensible archive (0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0)"
    Any idea of what sync fails? and what I need to do ?
    Thanks!

    JPPI-
    Did you try it with the iTunes your Mac already has?
    Try running Software Update in your System Preferences.  That should bring your computer up to the latest software available for 10.4.  You would end up with an older version of iTunes, but that may be good enough to activate your iPad.

  • "No headers or footer ware added because Acrobat encountered an unidentified error." in adobe professional 6.0, what to do with this error?

    "No headers or footer ware added because Acrobat encountered an unidentified error." in adobe professional 6.0, what to do with this error?

    My suggestion is that you reconsider whether your in Non-Drop frame. NTSC standard is Dropframe 29.97. I'm afraid you may have this backwards. DVX100's default to dropframe (29.97fps) in the USA. FCP could be encountering a pulldown cadence every few minutes because it expects a frame drop that is not there.
    Remember the frame drop only occurs every few minutes so this makes sense. With standard NTSC capture (not 24fps pulldown removal) such dropped frames don't mess anything up. They just subtly shift the timing and sync of the audio track. You could have captured this way for years and rarely seen a problem with short clips. When doing a pulldown removal, a missing or in your case extra frame can confuse the pulldown removal system as it expects to find the video encoded in 29.97 rather than 30fps.

  • What do I do with this error message: To use this library, make sure its file permissions are set correctly.

    So I cannot even access the application. It was working fine yesterday and today I get this error message:
    To use this library, make sure its file permissions are set correctly.
    I have changed nothing. All the pictures are there on the computer. Help?!

    Reboot.  Close any programs which open at start-up.  Run Disk Utility (you can type this in the Spotlight search field at the right end of your Menubar).
    In Disk Utility, select your drive from the list on the left, and click "Repair Disk Permissions".  This will take a few minutes, but should be less than ten.
    Reboot.
    Try to open your Library in Aperture.  What happens?

  • What should I do with this error message:

    Two days ago I opened Photoshop Elements 7 and received this error message:
    There is no disk in the drive.  Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Hard disk5\DR5
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled and updated.  Restarted the computer and I still get the same message.
    Please someone help!  I use this program often.  Thanks.

    Try resetting the PSE preferences by
       1. Close Elements.
       2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Edit.
       3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.

  • I have itunes set up to sync with my Ipod Touch and my Ipad.  As of today, it keeps looking for an iPhone to sync with and give me an error message.  I don't have an iPhone and don't know how to stop it from popping open with this error message.

    I have Itunes set up to sync with my Ipod touch and Ipad.  As of today, iTunes has started searching to sync with an iPhone, which I don't have and pops open with an error message stating it cannot locate the iPhone to sync.  I have looked in devices and only the iPad and iPod Touch are listed.  Any ideas on how to stop iTunes from searching for any iPhone it is never going to find? It is annoying to have it popping up all the time with the error message.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    You should really read the manual.
    "How do you restore from backup? "
    Restore.  When given the choice, choose to use backup.
    "And how can I check to see if the pics and videos are on my computer somewhere first??"
    They would only be where you put them.  What program did you use to import them?  Pics/vids taken with ipod are not part of the sync process at all.  You should be importing them just as you would with any digital camera.
    If you did not import them, then they are not on your computer.

  • Please help me with this error message on my lost Crashed Thread:  1  Dispatch queue: NSOperationQueue Serial Queue  Exception Type:  EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT) Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000

    I was organizing my contatcs when suddenly it disappeared and got this error message.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter the name of the crashed application or process. For example, if iTunes crashed, you would enter "iTunes" (without the quotes.)
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    ☞ The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    ☞ Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, select
              DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ User Diagnostic Reports
    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of crash reports. The name of each report starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report related to the process in question. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.
