Why isn't my calendar synching?
I rooted my NC a while ago, but only recently noticed that my calendar isn't synching with the Google calendar in the cloud. It's not a systemic issue with Google, since I'm getting all my mail from gmail, and I'm hooked up to the market (e.g., able to get apps I purchased on my phone to my NC). It's just the calendar that's not synching. It would be very handy to be able to access my schedule from the NC, so can somebody help me here? Thanks very much.

I haven't noticed an issue with Google Calendar except that it's a little slower. Example: if I create an event on the web, it shows up on my Droid almost immediately but about 30-60 minutes later on my Nook Color.
Something to try: go into Settings / Accounts and Sync / and turn off and back on your gmail Sync.Motorola Droid III - Stock
Nook Color - Froyo on microSD card

Like the earlier poster said, use Synker. It sucks that you have to manually run it, but it does work.
If you upgrade to Froyo, it will work automatically without synker. My guess is that there's something missing from the stock ROM that is required to make the Google Calendar sync in the background automatically. Whenever B&N gets around to moving to 2.2 (froyo) I imagine this issue will go away.

Another option that worked for me.
1. Open Gmail
2. Hit menu, Accounts
3. Add Account, yes this seems counterintuitive...but stick with me.
4. add your gmail info
5. select calendar sync when the options pop up
6. Enjoy calendar sync
