Default PocketMac/iCal Gone Berserk?!

Please Login to Remove!

Not getting my hopes up here... But just in case anyone can decipher the following PocketMac-generated error msg:

Quote:
[10:25:54.200] [NOTE: this exception originated in the server.]
Invalid parameter not satisfying: [[NSFileManager defaultManager] fileExistsAtPath:_ISDDataDirectoryPathForClient(_d ataDirectory, nil)]
Merging local records with device records failed. Will not continue.
[10:25:59.528] [NOTE: this exception originated in the server.]
Invalid parameter not satisfying: [[NSFileManager defaultManager] fileExistsAtPath:_ISDDataDirectoryPathForClient(_d ataDirectory, nil)]
Merging local records with device records failed. Will not continue.
What's happening is PocketMac has basically stopped working with iCal. Everything else works ok, but I'm stuck with an empty calendar and task list on my BlackBerry.

Here's what I've tried so far:
  1. SyncClean and DataPurge utilities
  2. Trashing prefs
  3. Repairing Mac permissions
  4. Wiping Blackberry
  5. Exporting and re-importing iCal.ics
  6. MissingSync (need PocketMac's Bookmark support)

If any of you kind folks have any recommendations I'm all ears.... Thanks!

Are you using PM or MS to sync your data? If you are using or have used both that could be the problem.

Thanks for the reply... Yeah, I've heard that too, so I made sure that PocketMac was completely erased before installing MissingSync. I played around with it a bit, but the lack of bookmark and PIN address support was a deal-breaker for me. So I completely wiped that and reinstalled PM.

Now it's KIND OF working but I'm still getting all these weird alarms on all-day events, like "remind 43,706 days after"...?!

I'm currently breaking my PocketMac calendar into two files -- one dates back to 2003 and synced great with my old Sony Ericsson T610; the other will be current and exclusively for my BlackBerry.

Hope it works...!

Try this, do a spotlight search for MS, you might be surprised on what you find. Then go ahead and delete all MS files. After you do that you might want to start the whole process all over again. Delete PM and spotlight it. Re-install PM, Purge, clean, reset, you know the drill.

Good advice! I used the "search within a Finder window" function to find all the MS files -- I'm pretty anal about stuff like this.

In addition to splitting my iCal into two parts -- one archive and one for BB sync -- I've also created a desktop-only calendar, for my all-day events and timed to-dos.

Gee, do you think this is why PM installs a separate "PocketMac" calendar in iCal by default...?
