Every time I sync my iPhone with my Mac,  iTunes copies the same episode of a podcast, even though I haven't listened to it or deleted it. Has anyone else seen this happen?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Yeah, this just started happening to me too.  I couldn't find anything in the forums either, but I checked the iOS 5 manual that you can download in iBooks.  If you swipe across a podcast in the iPod app, a delete option will pop up.  If you delete the podcast on your iPhone and in iTunes, you should be good.  I haven't found any other way to do it.

    It just started happening to me.  I downloaded 2 Podcasts to my iPhone, synched it up to my iTunes, and it synched the Podcasts from my phone to my PC.  I deleted the podcasts off of iTunes, re-synched, and my iPhone just synched those podcasts back to my iTunes.  Endless cycle.  Can't get rid of them.  Anybody have any answers?

    Sorry. Didn't realize this was iTunes for MAC forum.

    Same thing here.  Getting super annoying.  Get on it already Apple! (Thank you CDC23 but I've tried that and everything else and it doesn't solve it--clearly a bug--plus it would be silly to require us to delete every podcast on both devices to actually get rid of it.)

    me too....can't get podcasts to properly sync. i just did it manually using CDC23's advice [thanks!] but it's really not what i want. i'd like to sync FROM my computer TO my iPhone....and that doesn't seem to be an option anymore.
