MobileMe Sync Solution-Snow Leopard

keychain_iconApple Keychain-After suffering with mobile me for the last few days trying to get it to sync properly, I finally decided to make a appointment to take my MBP (Macbook Pro) to the Apple Genius to figure out why MobileMe simple would not sync my calendar, address book etc.

You have no idea how inconvenient it is to set a crucial business meeting up on your phone (complete with contact information) only to have the information not sync.

I checked out several websites, YouTube and even talked to a few blogger buddies to see if anyone had a workable solution to the issue.  I found out it was actually much simpler then I imaged, so I thought I would share my findings with you.

Mobile Me Error

Here is the crazy pop up I kept getting

So do this to solve the problem!

System Preferences

Note: My systems preferences may not look EXACTLY like yours, but the point is to focus on MobileMe



Log into Mobile, and click on Sync


Uncheck Mobile Me

Once you unchecked the Keychains box you can hit the sync button and your MobileMe will sync as normal.

    I use MacBook Pro w/Leopard and all current updates.
    Your solution interested me but my problem is slightly different. Ref your screen shot: I show Sync checked and Automatically displayed in grey, but sub boxes remain unchecked and the system will not let me check them. Status: Registering computer; after which it says: Never sync’ed. If I switch to Account or iDisc then back to Sync, then Sync with MobileMe is now unchecked. I’ve tried many suggestions to resolve this problem, but have yet to find a solution. Also, iDisk will not sync, I am unable to publish to iWeb, and when I check my Account it tell’s me all systems are operating normally. I also use FileMaker 9 w/9.0v3 update, but files will not open. Leopard has screwed my operations. Suggestion will be much appreciated.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to write to me. I am sorry to hear that you are having this problem. You say you are have all current updates for Leopard, however my set up is with Snow Leopard. Though this should not cause that much of a difference, I am not really sure I can help you with why the the sub boxes will not allow you to check them. On questions for you, have you considered updating your OS to Snow Leopard?

Let me know what you think?
