Chapter 5. Using .Mac Sync > Removing a Device from iSync

Removing a Device from iSync

iSync allows you to remove a device you previously added, so that it's no longer synchronized—say, you give your iPod to your kid or you upgrade your cell phone and need to remove the old one.

To remove a device from iSync

1.
Physically connect the device to your Mac via USB, FireWire, or Bluetooth.

2.
In the Applications folder, double-click iSync to launch it.

The iSync window opens (Figure 5.27).

Figure 5.27. When iSync is launched after a device is added, the device's icon appears in the main iSync window.


3.
Click the icon of the device you want to remove.

The window expands to show the device's preferences (Figure 5.28).

Figure 5.28. Before a device can be removed from iSync, its icon must be selected, which causes the window to expand, showing the device's preferences.


4.
From the Devices menu, choose Remove Device (Figure 5.29).

Figure 5.29. To remove a device, choose Remove Device from the Devices menu.


A dialog opens asking if you want to remove the device from iSync (Figure 5.30).

Figure 5.30. Before you're allowed to remove a device from iSync, you're asked to confirm the action. Click OK.


5.
Click OK.

The device is removed from iSync (Figure 5.31).
