iManual iCal iSync

by Rael Dornfest

iCal is here. And while you im^h^hpatiently await iSync, here's an iManual way to get those iCal calendars over on to your iPod.

  1. Plug in your iPod, being sure you've enabled iPod Firewire Disk support in iTunes so that it mounts on your desktop.

  2. In iCal, choose the calendar you wish to export by clicking on it in the upper-left-hand pane.

  3. Select File > Export... and save the .ics file to the Calendars directory on your iPod drive.

  4. Unmount and unplug your iPod.

  5. Browse your iPod to Extras > Calendars and, if all went to plan, you should be offered the choice of viewing a particular calendar (the one you exported) or All, if you exported more than one.

That should hold nicely until iSync sometime later this month.
