For some reason known only to Apple, only files downloaded through iTunes can be in the podcast section of iPod. As far as I know there is still no supported way around this.
Occassionaly someone reports getting around issue by manually editing the file using a hex editor. This involves comparing iTunes downloaded file with non-iTunes downloaded file to find the difference. Once found, the equivalent setting in other files can be changed. I have never done it though.
Thanks. Not the answer I was hoping for of course. I would guess Apple does it this in order to increase the percentage of podcasts that come through itunes.
I'm going to keep downloading through other methods and will add podcasts through the music section. Probably will also delete most of the music on my iphone to make things easier to find.
