Adding Podcasts to iPod classic
The settings for adding podcasts to iPod classic are unrelated to the settings for adding
songs and videos. Podcast settings don’t affect song or video settings, and vice versa.
You can set iTunes to automatically sync all or selected podcasts, or you can add
podcasts to iPod classic manually.
To set iTunes to update the podcasts on iPod classic automatically:
In iTunes, select iPod classic in the device list and click the Podcasts tab.
In the Podcasts pane, select “Sync Podcasts.”
Select the podcasts, episodes, and playlists you want, and set your sync options.
When you set iTunes to sync iPod classic podcasts automatically, iPod classic is updated
each time you connect it to your computer.
If “Sync only checked songs and videos” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs
only items that are checked.
