Google / Blackberry sync only going one way

I have a new Blackberry, & installed Google sync to sync my Google calendar. Events I add on the computer in Google are syncing to the Blackberry, but events I add in Blackberry are not syncing back to Google calendar. Any ideas why this would happen?

Did you download the calendar sync and set it for two way bidirectional sync?

Is this for Blackberry? I just downloaded & installed to my desktop, and got a message saying it's for Outlook 2003 & 2007 only. I'm not using Outlook

kjanicke, I watched the video but it didn't address this issue. It did lead me to a forum link where I saw that lots of other people are having the same issue. So may I'll switch from Google since sync doesn't seem to be reliable.

I think I found it. Google Sync app on the Blackberry; Select Options from the Options menu. Scroll to the bottom under Sync These Calendars. Click on Calendar name. Then, finally, you come to an options that says "Add new handheld events to.." and mine was set to None. I changed it to my calendar name & it uploaded Blackberry events to Google.
