I moved from MobileMe to iCloud. So my iPod2gn blocked in iOS4 is not part of the sync anymore. Well, it's a technical and commercial shame, but well, ok, enough said.

I wanted to be able to have my Calendar and Address book sync by iTunes when I plug my iPod to my iMac.

It works for emails, photos, calendars BUT not the AddressBook.

Is this a known issue or am I missing some basic stuff here?

Apparently, after moving to iCloud, iTunes won't sync Address Book with an iOS4 device, as there is some sort of issue with folder paths.

This is the only thing I could find addressing your problem.

This isn't directly what you asked for, but it might help:

You can sync your Address Book and Calendar to a GMail account. Google's instructions for this are fine, so I won't repeat them here. If you sync your Mac/PC to the GMail contacts as well, this will give you similar functionality to iCloud, even on iOS4.
