I made a calendar in sharepoint which is http://test/Lists/Calendar/calendar.aspx, set myself as Full Control of the Calendar List Permission.
Next I click on Sync Calendar with Outlook, this prompts with a link
Now in Sharepoint 2010 itself I am able to create and modify any events and this shows up correctly in both SharePoint and Outlook 2010. When I go to Outlook 2010, I always keep getting this message "You cannot make changes to contents of this read-only folder." and the stsync permission is always marked as "read". I have tried deleting and creating new calendar, full new active directory user profile test and played around with the SharePoint 2010 Calendar Advance Settings that has "Item Level Permssion set for Create and Edit Access is marked with Create and edit all items as true". Still cannot get this to work!
In addition, I have SharePoin 2007 the older version still running and I can Sync SharePoint 2007 calendar without any issues with Outlook 2007 & Outlook 2010. I just find it odd that SharePoint 2010 would produce problems.

Use Cached Exchange Mode is disabled. I found out that Outlook 2010 syncing with SharePoint 2010 fails with this error:
Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x80004005) : 'An error occurred in this SharePoint List (Test Calendar). Try updating the folder again. If the problem continues, contact the SharePoint site administrator. HTTP 500.
The server returned the following error message: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown.'
