    Right now, I am trying to download a 9.3MB video podcast, but it is downloading very very slowly and sometimes reports an error. I don't have dialup, I have a 2 Megabits/s connection (256 Kilobytes /s). Normally, a download this size would take approx 36 seconds. I'm wondering if this a fault on iTunes' part or on mine. Please help.

    Keep in mind that you aren't downloading the podcasts from iTunes (Apple) but from a third party host.

    I thought that podcasts were stored on Apple's servers, oh well.

    When it stops downloading just says (error -3259).

    Apple provides a Podcast Directory of what is submitted. You might want to check the podcaster's own site and see if they're having trouble.
