Recently a extra podcast "tab" (for lack of a better word) appeared in iTunes after I subscribed to a couple of podcasts via RSS. Only the new podcasts show in that new tab (I'll call it Tab 2). All the podcasts I had before appear to be in the original one (Tab 1).
However, when I try to sync my iPod now, I get the message that ‘Podcasts on the iPod “[iPod name]” cannot be synced because all of the podcasts selected for syncing no longer exist.’
I'm guessing that the podcasts in Tab 1 are in this folder: Music > iTunes > iTunes Music > Podcasts. The new podcasts in Tab 2 appear to be in Music > iTunes > iTunes Media > Podcasts.
The weird thing (or one weird thing) is that there are a number of other podcast folders and files in that Tab 2 / iTunes Media > Podcasts folder, even though the two new podcasts are the only ones visible in iTunes. They are all podcasts that I've subscribed to – and ones that are in the other folder (Tab 1 / iTunes Music > Podcasts) too – but the individual podcast episodes appear to be different.
Have I thoroughly confused everyone now? Any suggestions on how to fix this without losing anything?
