Podcasts disappear from iPod

I have iTunes 4.9 and the latest update for my 4G iPod. This morning I popped the iPod into the dock to sync any new podcasts that had downloaded. When I ejected the iPod all of my podcasts were gone from it. All my music was there, though.
I have iTunes set to sync all of my podcasts to my iPod, but only the podcasts I have checked. I re-synced and still no podcasts. So I went into the settings and set it to sync ALL podcasts, then went back and re-selected the setting to only sync checked podcasts and everything is back to normal now.

Did you have the preference to for deleting podcasts after they have been heard selected? There was an apple message stating that this could cause premature deletion from the iPod if a podcast was only partially listened to.

No, I initially had it set to only sync unplayed podcasts. But then I learned that even if you play a file for just a bit, iTunes marks that is "Played" and it will be removed. That's why I switched to sync the podcast files I have checked.

Aha. Yup, a similar situation. It's odd that they count the podcast as played when it hasn't finished playing. Hopefully this is something that apple will address in the next update.

Send some feedback to apple about this from the feedback page.
