    I have been having a problem syncing my 650 with my powerbook. isnc sees the 650 and will sync contacts and events in the 650 to the powerbook but the contacts and events in the powerbook addressbook and iCal won't transfer to the 650.

    any thoughts

    Yep, I had the same problem after upgrading to Tiger. I got some ideas on the Apple Support discussion boards (Kudos to Michael Lafferty!), and now all is well. Here's two things that worked for me:

    1. Repair permissions in your folders as follows (select folder and hit command-I to do so)

    For the Macintosh HD:Applications:Palm folder:

    Ownership & Permissions

    You can: Read & Write

    Details

    Owner: <shortusername>
    Access: Read & Write

    Group: admin
    Access: Read & Write

    Others: Read only

    For the Macintosh HD: HD:Library:Application Support:Palm Desktop folder:

    Ownership & Permissions

    You can: Read & Write

    Details

    Owner: <shortusername>
    Access: Read & Write

    Group: admin
    Access: Read & Write

    Others: Read only

    For the Macintosh HD: HD:Library:Application Support:Palm HotSync folder:

    Ownership & Permissions

    You can: Read & Write

    Details

    Owner: <shortusername>
    Access: Read & Write

    Group: admin
    Access: Read & Write

    Others: Read only

    2. The Macintosh overwrites handheld option is only available in conduits other than iSync - with iSync in play, only the default synchronize behavior is available, with two exceptions. Those are:

    # your choice to synchronize or replace data on a device during an initial synchronization
    # the ability to reset [or overwrite] device data at any time.
    do this from the menu in iSync.

    Good luck,
