Earlier this week, MacFixIt reader Luke Latham reported that after installing Security Update 2004-06-07, he was unable to synchronize his local iDisk copy with his iDisk:
"After installing the Security Update 2004-06-07 (10.3.4)...my iDisk fails to sync on my dual-2GHz G5 under 10.3.4. The iDisk is working fine, as I am able to upload files with my iBook. I've repaired permissions & used MacJanitor. I have exhausted all the steps that Apple recommends at the [.Mac] Support site for a dysfunctional iDisk (e.g., new name/PW in the .Mac Pref Pane, Keychain troubleshooting, un/re-registering my G5 via iSync). I also tried re-installing the 10.3.4 Combo updater, but that didn't help."
On Wednesday, Luke followed up with a solution to the problem that finally worked:
"I was finally successful at getting my iDisk to work again. Here is what I did:
- Opened iSync application and de-registered my G5.
- Opened the .Mac Pref Pane and turned off the local copy of iDisk option in the iDisk options.
- Re-started the G5.
- Opened the .Mac Pref Pane and reactivated the local copy of iDisk.
