I recently acquired a new 6th Generation Nano. Whenever I try to sync podcasts to it, iTunes freezes up and has to be forcibly stopped from the Task Manager. This doesn't happen if I try to sync the podcasts to another device (I have an iPad and until recently had an earlier model of Nano and neither have any problems). It's fine if I set it to sync podcasts, but if I actually mark off any podcasts to be transferred and then sync, the Nano sort of freezes in that 'Connected' state we usually get and iTunes freezes up entirely at some point while the 'Starting Sync' message is displayed. I don't have any sort of issues opening up the Podcasts folder or anything like that, it's just when I try to send Podcast files specifically to the Nano that I have a problem.
