I'm having a similar problem to ncfcstar, but not quite the same (maybe), hence, new thread. I just got my "5G+" iPod yesterday. All the podcasts that were in iTunes copied over fine. However, podcasts I had copied out of iTunes (because I didnt have an iPod for a while) and then dragged back on to the iPod dont show up in the iPods Podcast menu-you have to select Podcast as a genre. Thats not too big of a deal, as in the future I wont be copying anything out of iTunes prior to transferring it to my iPod. The REAL problem is that now iTunes cant see those rogue podcasts on my iPod! They dont show up under Podcasts, and they dont show up under Music! As near as I can tell, I have no way to delete those podcasts from my iPod! Any suggestions?
