I subscribe to Acoustic Long Island, a popular acoustic music podcast. Suddenly I can't put the podcasts on my player anymore. A message comes up saying I don't have permission to create this form. Is there some kind of DRM involved? And on a free podcast?
More generally, the m250 insists on classifying my files by artist, album, etc. Since I listen mostly to spoken word podcasts, and to files I create myself, this is a real pain in the neck. Everything winds up in an "unknown" category.

I've had a similar problem in the past. The files on your iPod don't show up on your PC because your daughter put them there via another computer (possibly a Mac), and/or software other than iTunes. Your PC just can't detect them.
I used free software called Floola (http://www.floola.com/home/download_win/), to manually go into the iPod directory and deleted the unwanted files. It's very easy to do. Hope this helps.
There is a workaround to not use iTunes to subscribe to and download your favorite podcasts. This workaround is called Juiced : http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ and it is free. Once you have used Juice to download all your podcasts you can then transfer them (the mp3s) to your Sansa Clip the same way you do with your music.
Create a folder on your View (in MSC mode) named "PODCAST". DO NOT put it in your MUSIC folder, but in the root directory. Place your Podcasts in there and disconnect your Sansa. After it refreshes you'll find your Podcasts under "Music\Podcasts" on your View :)
JOHN, IS THE IPOD FULL?ALL OF YOUR POD CASTS MAY NOT FIT.BUT YOU CAN PLACE THEM IN A PLAYLIST FOLDER AND RANDOM PLAY THAT WILL CAUSE IPOD TO SYNCH.DIFFERANT ONES EACH TIME.ALSO CHECK YOUR SYNC SETTINGS.RICHARDM69
When you connected the iPod it was most likely in automatic sync mode which caused it to sync to your computer. When you restored the iPod you wiped the content out of the iPod. You will have to regather the music and podcasts you wanted at this point. I recommend creating a back up in your computer this time though. Just in case it should happen again.
Greetings, As I understand it video podcasts will not work on the shuffle. However there are a ton of great audio podcasts that you can subscribe to free of charge from the iTunes store. Podcasts vary in length and mbs used. The podcasts I listen to are about an hour long. On a 1 gig shuffle you can fit about 26 hours of podcasts. Let me know if you have any more questions by commenting in this thread. Also please rate me well if this helped you. Take Care, -WN
