Loading Podcasts onto iPod
The settings for loading podcasts onto iPod are unrelated to the settings for loading
songs. Podcast update settings don’t affect song update settings, and vice versa. You
can set iTunes to automatically sync all or selected podcasts, or you can load podcasts
onto iPod manually.
To set iTunes to update the podcasts on iPod automatically:
1 Select iPod in the iTunes Source pane and click the Podcasts tab.
2 In the Podcasts pane, select “Sync … podcast episodes” and choose the number of
episodes you want in the pop-up menu.
3 Click “All podcasts” or “Selected podcasts.” If you click “Selected podcasts,” also select
the podcasts in the list that you want to sync.
4 Click Apply.
When you set iTunes to sync iPod podcasts automatically, iPod is updated each time
you connect it to your computer.
Note: If “Only sync checked items” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only
items that are checked in your Podcasts and other libraries.
