    I have my iTunes set up to only copy the 10 most recent podcast episodes. When I sync my iPod, it copies ALL the episodes (some podcasts have 300+ episodes). I have tried all the settings... (10 most recent new, 10 most recent unviewed) but my iPod is full. Its so full that I can't download new apps!

    help!

    You can manually check or uncheck songs. Use the shift trick to select a lot of podcasts. To make it so only the checked songs/podcasts are copied, check the box for sync only checked songs and videos (on the summary screen for your ipod, and don't worry- this covers podcasts as well as songs and videos).

    But how can this be done automatically? Before I upgraded to 2.0 and the new version of iTunes, I would always have fresh podcasts updated everytime i synced my iPod. I don't want to manually check/uncheck files from my 10 podcasts if these can be updated automatically. :(

    I am not sure what the problem is. Could it possibly be because you have more than 10 unviewed podcasts?

    but isn't that option there to manage libraries with more than ten podcasts?
