The phantom podcast on my IPhone

Recommended Posts

Ok this one is kind of goofy. I don't now if if is a IPhone problem or an ITunes problem. I am an avid podcast listener and subscribe to 35 different podcasts. I like to manually add and delete them instead of any auto sync function. Last Sunday Nov 14 I updated both my ITunes to v.9 & IPhone to 3.0.1. The following day I did my typical morning routine adding & deleting podcasts. The following afternoon I noticed podcasts on my IPhone that I thought I deleted and just assumed I had missed them. The following morning when I went to delete these podcasts I did not see them in ITunes while I was syncing. But the podcasts are still on my IPhone and I have no idea how to remove them. Is there a way to delete podcasts from the IPhone itself. I was initially just 3 "phantom" podcasts but now it is 5 and I'm afraid that it will slowly begin to hog my memory

Have you tried swiping your finger across the right hand side of the podcast? A little red delete sign should appear.

I think it's an iTunes problem. I have one podcast that won't go away and won't let me use Get Info to change the tags. I ended up manually deleting but it won't let me totally remove from list. It just has the exclamation point indicating it can't find it.

 

Also, I don't think the swipe/delete works with music/podcasts like it does with other things on the iPhone.

I know this won't come as any surprise but I didn't know you could do that. Thanks so very much.

That doesn't seem to work on my iPod Touch running 3.0.1

Mine says it's on 3.1.1---maybe that's the difference??

And, it only works from the Podcasts section, not from Playlists.

 

Thanks, podgirl, since I always listen via playlists I didn't know about that either.
