    Default Sync "read-only" iCal calendars to iPhone

    I was frustrated to find that my "read-only" iCal calendars, such as my Holidays and Birthdays calendars, didn't sync up with my iPhone, so I created a simple AppleScript to copy these "read-only" calendars to a "writable" calendar, so they could be pushed to my iPhone through MobileMe. I thought others here might find it useful so I thought I'd go ahead and post it.

    Before running the attached script please, please, PLEASE, backup your iCal database. I've tested the script pretty thoroughly myself, but I don't want to be responsible for data lost.

    Feel free to post any bugs you find.

    Talking Amazing!

    I am new to this forum, and found it by a google search for a solution to the iCal subscription calendars not syncing to iPhone problem. Thanks so much for sharing this script! It worked like a charm!
    Thanks again,

    Default "empty list"

    2 years later someone still has the same problem and finds your script. I don't know, pry it's because i'm running Lion, but the script tells me an error and something about an "empty list".
    It is german, but translated it should be:
    "iCal received an error: the list is empty"

    any idea?
