This appears to be an intermittent bug in the Store software (assuming that your feed itself is OK, but that particular error doesn't usually seem to be related to problems in the feed).
I should leave it a day or so and try again: it may sort itself out.

This is my feed:
Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2013 4:40 AM (in response to Roger Wilmut1)
Now there is file at the adress, but the itunes does not work.
I don't understand.

The feed is technically OK, and can be subscribed to manually in iTunes, so we're back at the answer I originally gave.
However there are a couple of points you should address. Some of your filenames have spaces in them: although the feeed has handled this correctly by substituting the code %20, so that it's not actually causing a problem, it's bad practice and better avoided. The usual workaround is to substitute an underscore for each space.
Regarding the second oldest episode, I should change that title if I were you. Despite the way you've laid it out it's quite obvious what word you are referring to and it's likely to get you rejected. Even if you set the 'explicit' tag to 'yes', explicit language is not allowed in titles. You might get away with this, but I would expect the risk of rejection to be high.

I made a new one. Please check it. How is it looks like.
It is just only one episode. If it works fine, I try upload a new episode.
Atually I cannot submit ( 11111 error again).
What should I need to more?
Thanks for your help.

The feed is basically OK, and can be subscribed to manually in iTunes.
You still have a space in your media file filename - this doesn't stop the feed working, but I would advise replacing it with an underscore and amending the feed accordingly, and avoiding spaces in future. Generally you will get away with it, but it's not good practice and might cause an issue somewhere.
You have described your episode as a 'radio mix' and it appears to consist entirely of music. Is this taken from commercially available CDs? If you are doing this without clearance from the copyright owners you are in breach of copyright and if detected will get you rejected by or removed from the Store (and possibly sued by the copyright owners if they notice you). The term 'radio mix' is likely to alert the Store staff to the contents.
If you have obtained clearance or are using 'podcast safe' music you should add a note to this affect to the overall description.

Thank you Roger I have every lisece, what it needs to publishing as a dj. But I don't understand why doesn't work?

I should leave it for a day or so and see whether the problem goes away. If it still doesn't, you could try emailing them at podcasts 'at' apple.com, though I can't promise you will get a helpful answer.
You still have a space between 'Tropical' and 'Beach' (though this won't stop it working).

Please note - if your have RIAA music in your podcast it likely will not get approved - and if it does - it likely will get pulled down some time in the future.
You can not get all the licenses needed for podcasting - as a podcast is a download and a download in the eyes of the law is a mechanical copy. Soundexchange license does NOT cover podcasting.
And since it is a mechancial copy you would need to deal with the Harry fox agency and their license is $0.091 per download per song up to 5 minutes per song. And even if you then paid that and got the ASCAP, BMI and SESAC licences - you still don't have one covering you with the record labels as mentioned above Soundexchange does not cover downloads / podcasts.
So there is a good chance if your podcast has any music that is not "Podsafe" it will either not get approved or will eventually and with out warning pulled down.

I am having the same problem.
My feed is DualNetworkingPodcast
Have I set that up correctly?
Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2013 7:07 PM (in response to jameshannan)
No your feed is not set up correctly.
There is no enclosure tag with the URL for the MP3 file.
Here is the code from your test episode :
<title>Test mp3 feed</title>
<pubDate>Tue, 29 Jan 2013 04:40:56 +0000</pubDate>
<dc:creator>email@example.com (James Hannan)</dc:creator>
<content:encoded><![CDATA[<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DualNetworkingPodcast/~4/8M6OlQqjvWY" height="1" width="1"/>]]></content:encoded>
What you are missing is any reference at all to the MP3 file and specifically the enclosure tag.
How are you creating the RSS feed? Where are you hosting the MP3 files?
Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2013 7:40 PM (in response to Robert Walch)
I am hosting my MP3 and MP4 files with AWS (Amazon)
I am using feedburner to create the feed and I am using "blubrry" plugin for my wordpress site.
I wanted to be able to draw the mp3 files and the mp4 files I place in the folder automatically through the feed.
I guess I can't do that
Do I have to set up a new feed for every MP3 I upload?
