iCal will not sync with Blackberry using MissingSync or PocketMac

My iCal (Tiger) will not sync to my BB Curve. It has been syncing fine for a long time but a few days ago it quit syncing. I have rebooted, reinstalled, renewed, restarted, replaced and re everything - still won't work

I use MissingSync, and today tried PocketMac - neither one works. Missing Sync stalls out and gives me an error. PocketMac runs all the way through but the BB calendar doesn't update.

Other apps (Address Book, etc) sync just fine. It's only iCal that won't sync.

Ideas?

These types of issues normally caused by a corrupted calendar entry somewhere.

Backup the BB data, and then either wipe it totally, or remove all calendar Entries

Then tell the Sync program to push from your computer to the BB ( Not a SYNC !! )

hopefully things should be OK, but you will lose entries not in your computer ( but may have been on the BB )

It may be a good idea to export the calendar as a readable file 9 CSV or something ) so that you can access the BB data to consolidate

I hope this helps !

I have tried to find a way to purge the BB database - can't seem to locate instructions for doing that.

I have purged and replaced the iCal database, per Apple's instructions - no change.

When I run the Sync, I have the setting on "Replace BB data with Desktop data" - which I believe is a PUSH - and nothing happens. The iCal events do not show up on the BB.

1) Do you know how to purge calendar db on the BB? (I have done a number of soft resets).
