A fix for an iSync Error - E_FMS_FILE_FOUND Internet
My PowerMac started giving me an error when trying to sync to .Mac: (E_FMS_FILE_FOUND), but my iBook would sync without a problem. I could not find anything on this site or Apple's relating to this error. After a quick Google search, though, I did come across this posting by 'Michael' on VersionTracker, and it solve my problem. Here's the essence of his solution:
  1. Start on a machine that has the initial data (my iBook in this case) ready to be synched.
  2. Open iSync on that machine.
  3. Go to Devices -> Reset All Devices.
  4. When asked what you'd like to reset to, choose "This computer."
  5. After it's done, go to the troublesome machine and re-sync, choosing to use .Mac to overwrite the local computer.
Not sure if this hint will work without a second Mac, but it solved the problem I was having and hopefully will save others from having to go elseware to find a solution. Thanks again to Michael who figured this one out (and read the initial posting on VT if you need additional details).
