I have some teaching material in mp3 format that I like to listen to on my iPhone.  Prior to iTunes 11 upgrade, I could import it into iTunes, get info, options tab, then set the Media Kind to Podcast.  This moved it from the music library into the podcast library, which allowed me to take advantage of 30 second rewind while listening, as well as remembering where I was when I left off if I didn't listen to the entire thing in one setting.


Now that I've upgraded to iTunes 11, this no longer works.  I can still select Podcast as Media Kind, but the files stay in the music library and when I do another get info on them, they are still listed as Media Kind of music.


Does anyone know of a work-around for this?



iTunes 11, Windows 7
