ITunes :: Podcasts And Applications Gone

Oct 7, 2009

I started iTunes this evening and as it opened a "thermometer"-type dialog appeared that said something about "converting" and "xml". (I didn't pay much attention as I was doing something else while it opened.) Once it opened, iTunes started going through all my music resetting volume. By this time I knew something was not normal. Then I noticed that, while my music appeared to be there, none of my Apps are, nor are any of the podcasts I had subscribed to. I had just synced my iPhone this a.m. with no discernible problem. I had deleted some duplicate episodes of one podcast (which are still in my trash), but that was the only thing that I had done out of the ordinary. Can anyone tell me:

1) What happened (and how do I prevent it from happening again)?
2) How do I get my apps and my podcasts back?
3) If I have to restore from my latest Time Machine backup (which is more than 10 days old, I'm afraid), how would I do that

Applications :: Itunes Won't Autodelete Some Podcasts

Feb 18, 2008

I subscribe to various podcasts like NBC Nightly News, Geekbrief, etc. which have a daily show. I have podcasts setup to only keep the 3 newest episodes and auto delete the rest. Today however, I found a bunch of episodes dating back months which were never auto deleted but didn't show up in my podcasts menu. I had over 6 gigs of old episodes! I even still had the folder of episodes from podcasts I had long unsubscribed to and deleted from the podcasts window of iTunes. Does anyone know if this is an iTunes bug or am I doing something wrong?

Applications :: Won't Sync Podcasts / Using ITunes

Nov 12, 2009

Whenever I press sync in iTunes, it starts doing all sorts of things like backing up the ipod touch, downloading the applications which takes forever. Is there a way just to sync the podcasts? I have gone through all the various settings and deselected everything that might be causing this.

I don't know why many have used ml_ipod with winamp in the past but I had a good thing going. But unfortunately Apple seems to have broken the support with the latest firmware.

Applications :: All Podcasts Gone After Upgrading To ITunes 9.1.1

Apr 29, 2010

I recently upgraded to iTunes 9.1.1. After plugin in my iPhone I realized that some weird stuff was going on. I.E., iTunes asked me if I wanted to transfer all my iPhone purchases back to iTunes (I never buy iPhone Apps outside iTunes). After letting it SYNC again (iTunes copied all iPhone APPs back to iTunes) I noticed that my iTunes' podcast list was empty. Further investigation in showing me that files are there (~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Podcasts) but they are not showing in iTunes. I get a screen offering to show me some podcast videos & tutorials).

So, my question is:

1. Is there a way to rebuild iTunes database to see if that fixes the issue?
2. If #1 is not possible. How can I import my podcast list back.

Applications :: Won't Get Podcasts Back In ITunes / Grayed Out

Oct 13, 2010

I was just checking out podcasts in the iTunes store now and noticed that they are all grayed out, and that I can't subscribe to any.

I figure this has to do with the fact that I must have removed podcasts from my sidebar at some point.

So I go into preferences to find all of the checkboxes, but podcasts is greyed out there too Therefore I am unable to check it. The only other greyed out option is genius but I'm ok with that

Applications :: Won't Work With Enhanced Podcasts In Itunes

Oct 26, 2009

I just got an iPod Touch (having used an iPod Classic for a few years), and noticed that for Enhanced Podcasts have, in addition to the images/links,the ability to skip between sections very easily without having to FF/Rew and hope for the best.

Is this functionality broken/no longer in itunes? I found an apple support article (URL) that says an icon should appear that lists all the sections, but it doesn't appear for me.

Using iTunes 9, everything up-to-date.

I want to keep the unplayed podcasts and delete them from my library once they have been played.

Applications :: Won't Work With ITunes Podcasts Folder Position

Sep 22, 2009

After I did a backup of my iTunes database on my PC and restored it on my new mac I have just discovered that I now have two Podcasts folders, one within the Music folder and another one within my Music:iTunes folder. As far as I can see all the podcasts inside the iTunes program is pointing to the files in the Music:Podcasts folder. Another strange thing is that all the podcast files I have is found in the Music:Podcasts folder but in the Music:iTunes:Podcasts folder only a part of my podcasts are found. Since I'm still new on a Mac I'm a little confused about this . Could any of you please tell me what the default position of the Podcasts folder is in Mac OS?

Applications :: ITunes Not Automatically Download New Podcasts / Can't Find Settings

Sep 28, 2009

I'm subscribed to about 10 differet podcasts, and I just realised that there hasn't been a new episode of any of them in a while. I right clicked them all in turn, and chose Update Podcast, and lo and behold, a whole slew of episodes started downloading. For some of them there are even more than 1 episode that hasn't downloaded. Can anyone tell me why iTunes doesn't automatically download new episodes of these subscribed podcasts? iTunes is set to check everyday for new episodes, but simply seems to have not bothered! This has happened a few times before too.

EDIT - From iTunes saying that there are no new episodes of any of my subscribed to podcasts, I've ended up with 20 downloads after manually checking.

Applications :: ITunes / Won't Select Podcasts To Sync If Episodes Not Downloaded

Nov 18, 2009

In order to select which podcasts should be synced to the iPhone/iPod, one has to select the desired podcast subscription from the Devices/Podcast/Sync_Podcasts list. However, the podcast list in the Devices/Podcast/ page now only displays podcast subscriptions if it has episodes already downloaded. One cannot include podcast subscriptions if that podcast subscription currently has no downloaded episodes. This is annoying.

Worst still, previously selected podcast subscriptions that have no more episodes will no longer be selected anymore even if it downloads episodes later. Therefore, one has to keep going back to the list and selecting the podcast subscription over and over again.

Applications :: Unable To Work With Itunes / Stuck Downloading Podcasts

Jan 18, 2010

I've got about 150 individual podcasts downloading and I've subscribed to about 20 , the problem is it's now stuck and won't let me "Pause all" or "resume all" on the download screen. I have a feeling if I shut it down the hard way I'll lose all those individual podcasts and podcast subscriptions that I entered, and it took me hours to figure out the ones I wanted. Is there a way to backup so it will resume all this on restart?

Applications :: Streaming Video Podcasts In ITunes / Can't Fast Forward

Mar 21, 2010

I used to watch streaming video podcasts in iTunes and they would popup in a separate quicktime-type window. Since a recent update streaming podcasts appear in a non-adjustable window over iTunes and I am no longer able to select which portion of the podcast I would like to view. This is irritating.

I've looked through the settings and can't find anything that fixes this.

This is 10.6.2 on a Macbook Pro (Spring 2009?), with iTunes 9.

ITunes :: Can't Download Podcasts

May 27, 2012

Something is blocking my computer from downloading podcasts. I have NetBarrier and Little Snitch installed but disabling both of them didn't help. When I try to download a podcast in iTunes, I get an exclamation point next to the podcast and nothing downloads. I tried this with several podcasts and none will download. I can download the podcasts onto my iPad so the problem is with something on my MacBook that is blocking iTunes podcasts. The App Store is working fine in iTunes and I could download apps to the MacBook. The problem seems to be only with the podcasts. I'm using the latest versions of Lion and iTunes. I checked the link to my iTunes library (on a separate partition) and that is working fine.

ITunes For Mac :: Why Are Podcasts Still Downloading

Jun 4, 2014

I noticed there was an issue with the last update (11.2.1) where podcasts were unexpectedly downloading. The new update (11.2.2) states that it "fixes a problem where certain podcast episodes may download unexpectedly after upgrading". However since installing the new update it has not seemed to have solved the problem. As soon as Itunes opened up again once the update was complete about 7 podcasts were downloading???

ITunes For Mac :: Why Can't Subscribe To Podcasts

Jun 29, 2014

On iTunes, all of my podcasts have become unsubscribed--and I can't figure out how to subscribe again. Nothing happens when I hit the subscribe button; when I right-click on the podcast and choose "subscribe" from the menu; or even when I go to the iTunes store and hit subscribe? 

I think the issue may have resulted from when my iPhone Podcast app was synced, but I've since turned off syncing across products.

ITunes :: 10 - Can't Delete Podcasts From IPhone 4S?

Feb 6, 2012

I can't use iTunes 10 to delete podcasts from my iPhone 4S (iOS 5.0.1) when it is hooked up to my Macbook Air (OS 10.6.8).The edit menu shows the Delete command greyed out, and using the backspace key has no effect. I know I can delete individual podcasts on the iPhone itself by swiping sideways. I don't want to do that - I want to delete multiple podcasts from the iPhone at once using iTunes. This has been possible with previous versions of iTunes and an iPod, for example. Not sure why it's not working with the iPhone 4S. Wonder if I'm missing something obvious?

ITunes :: How To Keep Podcasts From Syncing To IPhone

May 26, 2012

I am beyond frustrated right now. So far my transition to iPhone, iPad, and OS X has been really pleasant and convenient. This is just so beyond stupid though. Here is what I would like to happen:

I download podcasts on my phone while on the road, and I listen to them and delete them at my discretion. When I sync my phone to my computer, iTunes doesn't download any of the podcasts from my phone to the comptuer, nor does it delete them off my phone. That's ALL I want to happen.

Instead, I download podcasts on my phone, listen and delete them at my discretion, and that works fine. But when I sync to my computer, it is just an exercise in frustration. It downloads the podcasts from my phone to my computer/iTunes, even though I have gone through every setting to make sure "sync podcasts" is off. I do not want the files transferred to my limited desktop space. Furthermore, it sometimes decides to just delete the podcast off my phone entirely. I like to leave old podcasts on to re-listen to sometimes. 

iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
