New iPod Nano Podcast Syncing Issue

Recommended Posts

Podcasts don't seem to be syncing properly on my 3rd gen Nano. (I may have missed clicking on a checkbox somewhere, who knows?) I have it set up to sync all of my unplayed podcasts. The podcasts transfer over to the iPod just fine, but say If I've listened to an entire podcast on the Nano, then hook it back up to my Mac, iTunes doesn't recognize that it's been played.

 

Also, if you've listened to a podcast halfway through on the Nano and hook it back up to the Mac and let it sync, the podcast is not keeping the placeholder where you left off listening to the podcast.

 

All software updates are in place and the podcast syncing feature works flawlessly on my 1st gen Nano. Any clues?

 

Thanks!

Sounds like classic early adopter woes. You could try to return the Nano to the place of purchase and see if you have the issue with the new one, but likely you'll need to wait for some sort of update.

spork is probably correct. You could do a Get Info on an individual podcast or two and see if the Remember position option is properly checked. I don't believe I need to set those manually but the new nano interface may have missed that setup.

Thanks for the help guys. It appears to be syncing properly now. I clicked a checkbox that I didn't think would address the issue, but apparently it did. Also, one thing I noticed with this new Nano, is that it is slow about disconnecting when you eject it. I may have pulled it off it's sync cable permaturely.

 

So, for now... all is well.
