Your iTunes Store page is using the feed at http://www.voxmelodica.com/audio/rss.xml . It will continue to use this feed until you tell it otherwise.
If you submit your feed to Feedburner it will then publish its own version of it, which with a new podcast you can then submit to iTunes (though it won't make it update any faster, the only advantage is that you might be able to get some statistics out of Feedburner). When you update the original feed, Feedburner will automatically update its version of it, so you have two versions of the feed but only need to update the original.
However, the link you give leads nowhere.
If you can get the Feedburner feed working and want to transfer iTunes to it you need to follow the procedure outlined here:
You must be careful to follow the instructions exactly and not make any errors in the URL of the new feed or you will lock yourself out of your podcast. Do not attempt this until you are 100% sure that the Feedburner feed is working properly.
Incidentally your embedded images seem to be working perfectly well:

Thanks Roger. Your response clarified things a lot. I notice you are the main-man in this forum. Thanks for you're work - it's a great resource and I know your expertise is appreciated by many. (I was starting to wonder if your body has been posessed by the late Mr. Jobs!)
By the way - am I allowed a supplementary question?? - the OWNER field seems to come up as "Unknown" on the iTunes web directory and on my iPhone iTunes store. I've rechecked my rss and it looks ok. I was wondering if it doesn't like the fact that I've specified a different <name> and <email> address in my rss compared to my Apple ID. This seems a little obscure but I can't see why it is ignoring the <itunes:owner> in my rss. I haven't been able to verify this but the rest of the rss has updated in the last 24h, but the owner (and cover art - still waiting!) is still "Unknown". Any thoughts?

The author name is populated from the 'itunes:author' tag, not the 'itunes:owner' one, but this is correctly filled out: I'm afraid it's just a question of waiting.
The 'podcast image' which appears on the Store page is referenced correctly in the 'itunes:image' tag, but the image is greyscale: it needs to be RGB (even though it's actually black and white only).You need to resave it as an RGB image with a different filename and amend the feed accordingly. Apple are now saying it should be 1400x1400 px (podcasts will not be chosen aas 'featured podcasts' if it's any smaller, though it won't prevent the podcast from appearing in the Store).
