hello halakahiki82. Thanks for posting. Yes, When I plug in my phone I click on the device button, but I cannot select or manage my music from the music pane because I have "manage music manually" checked in the summary section of my device. When that option is checked the music pane is greyed out and nothing shows.
This is the same as it's always been, if I recall correctly. In the past, if I would go to the main iTunes window the device connected would appear in that window, below the library sections and the iTunes store section. I could open a couple of windows and manually drag and drop music (or books or videos) from the library into the device, and, manually remove them by selecting them in the device library and then deleting them. This I can't figure out how to accomplish in iTunes 11.

Right, but are you then clicking On This iPod?
Because the music tab will not let you do anything.

I'm sorry I misunderstood your first post. I had another look at your snapshot and I see you have a button "on this iPod". When I click on my device iPhone 4 no such button appears on the device window.
Perhaps it is different for a phone than an iPod ? I'm using an iPhone 4.
Apple, please help ??

I had the same problem and I just figured it out. Make sure your itunes window is stretched as wide as possible because the "on this iphone" button will hide if the window is too small.
See you can't see the button. if you expand you can see it!
You can make the itunes window larger by pulling on the lower right hand corner. make sure you're pulling right on the little ridges on the corner or nothing will happen.
Once you expand the screen press the "On this Iphone" button. You will then see your music in a similar way to how it used to show up. Underneath the devices and blue "done" buttons there is "Add to" button, click on it.
When you click on this button your screen will change. Your iphone's music list will show up on the right hand side and your albums will show up too the left. You are now in a place where you can drag music onto your iphone.
Simply go to the top and choose how you would like to view your music and go from there.
You can drag music to the right and it will go on to your iphone in a similar manner to the old itunes.
I hope this helps a little. I don't know about the podcast bug so hopefully apple will get back to you!

thank you so much for your post. It's the answer ! I often forget to maximize the window because I usually have 5 or more apps running so I customize the size of my windows on a regular basis. Your suggestion is perfect. Once I expanded the window I could see the "on this phone" button and it's easy to work from there.

hello again everyone,
just a quick note to add that since the 5th when I last posted to this discussion, I have found that the sidebar can still be viewed in the old way. This was news to me and I discovered it accidentally. Apple, I humbly take back all those nasty things I said about you the other day...
Have a great weekend everyone, it's a beautiful, snowy day here on the Prairies.

Thank you for your post, I too have been grappling with the new iTunes (if it ain't broke - don't fix it) and have found all the posts helpful. However I still have one problem, the playlists that I have succesfully imported into the iPod only show in the 'recently added' and the new playlist does not show in the list of playlists.
Has anybody else had this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
