I "updated" my iPod and now I can't listen to podcasts like I used to. Used to be I'd select Podcasts, hit play and then sit back and listen. Now that I've "updated" it stops at the end of every single podcast and I have to click/scroll through the menus and select the next one to listen to manually. What idiot at Apple actually thought this would be a good idea? Are there any fixes? Can I un-update my iPod back to the older version?

Is it just me or does it seem like every update creates as many problems as it solves?

    Yes, there is an easy way to play podcasts sequentially.

    Drag your podcasts from the podcast area of itunes, and into the main library. Then set up a Smart playlist with the following conditions;

    1. genre = podcast, and
    2. play count = 0.

    Select the Smart playlist on your iPod, sit back and enjoy uninterrupted podcasts.

    There have been extensive discussions in this forum about the update. It is possible to roll back to the previous version of iTunes if you prefer the older version. (I haven't had to do this myself, so I won't pretend to know how to do it, but many Experts have given advice in these discussions and it would be worth a search if the Smart playlist idea doesn't fit the bill.)
