Same here. Thanks first for all the good ideas, unfortunately they didn't work. The only workaround was to activate the log files as described on the RIM site and then identify the individual calender entry that causes the crash. In my case those were two perfectly non-corrupted "Travel Information" calender entries, which my travel agency sends as an email attachement. They work fine in Outlook itself, however the sync crashes because in some of the fields (e.g. attendees) there is more information then intellisync can handle. Not that intelligent after all.

I believe in the 21st century a piece of software should be able to absorb such an error without crashing. Pity.
Otherwise I love my BB Bold. My son as well, since I copied Disney's Cars as a video...
This is why I hate Groupwise
I have read this entire thread and tried everything. I was tearing my hair out until I realized that the sync was shutting down when it tried to read my Curve's calendar.
Earlier in the day I had used Novell's Groupwise to set up a meeting between two professors and when the invitation was sent to my phone I accepted it into my calendar on my device.
Now here is where it get's tricky. I use Outlook 2007 on my laptop for email and scheduling. I don't use my schools Groupwise system because it is slow, clunky, and basically a piece of junk when compared to the Ent. version of Outlook (long live the Exchange server). Sooooo...when I tried to sync my BB and my Outlook the Groupwise appointment on my phone was what was causing it to crash.
I have known for quite sometime that Groupwise and Outlook don't play nice together (I swear some software engineers need a good hard thrashing for not making their competing products play nice together on stuff like this).
If none of the other solutions in this thread have helped, you probably have an invitation from a software solution that conflicts with the technology you are using to sync your computer and your BB. This is a bit more onerous than it should be, but you might need to review all the meeting invitations that you accepted since the problem popped up, and delete the appointment from your device/computer, that conflicts with your software.
As for what software conflicts with what I have no clue. I know that Gmail and Outlook play nice together, I know that Groupwise and Outlook don't like eachother. But that is all I have figured out.
Oh, and if any one from RIM is reading this; Desktop Manager sucks and Roxio is a total POS. I mean serriously, the most popular smartphone company on the planet can't come up with a better syncing solution? I love your phones, but your software stinks.
Nothing is working
I don't even get to the synchronization part...
1) I open Desktop Manager 4.7 (was using 4.6, same issue so I thought updating would help)
2) I plug in my Curve 8310 via USB
3) Reads for application updates
4) Initializes Random Number Generator
4) Pop-up for Sync comes up "Synchronization Progress"
5) Windows Error Message comes up: (cut and paste into new browser)
And the Error Report Details: (Seems to be something with the Synchronize.dll?)
(cut and paste into new browser)

What is the link to the instructions for the activation of log files on RIM? I could not find... ?
I downgraded to Desktop Manager 4.2 P2 and it now syncs.
Microsoft provides the Inbox Repair Tool for correcting most problems with damaged Personal Folders .pst files. If you do not see the Inbox Repair Tool on the Start menu, under Programs | Accessories | System Tools, use Start | Find or Start | Search (depending on your operating system)to search your system for Scanpst.exe.

In Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000 in Internet Mail Only mode, right-click on Outlook Today or the top level of any other set of folders and then choose Properties.
Some people like to export a folder, such as Contacts, to a separate backup .pst file. That's fine for the data, but it does not back up any folder customizations such as views and custom forms. If you want to back up those, too, copy the entire folder to a new .pst file instead of using the export feature.
You may also try an advanced PST Repair Tool like Stellar Phoenix outlook PST Repair Software which scans, repairs and restores corrupted PST. Effective to use and safe for PST repair, the software supports all Outlook versions and helps at each stage of corruption for PST recovery. Just specify the file path & click to PST repair & get the corruption free PST.
worked like a charm
this worked like charm for me...... i had just about lost my patience looking for a solution to this. after calling my service provider for the last time i was determined to find the solution............. thanks again to our fellow Pinstackers!!!!
