Thanks Miikerman, that’s another thing I wasn’t aware of with the Clip.
Do you know of another utility (similar to itunes) for managing podcasts (updates and subscriptions)? That’s really the only reason I have itunes still on my computer.
The podcast/audiobook ID3 tag enhancement was added by SanDisk after the Clip first came out–as far as I’m aware, the enhancement isn’t documented anywhere apart from in the forum and in the firmware update notes when the enhancement first came out as part of the firmware update.
As to podcast aggregators:
Personally, I still use my tried-and-true Juice (formerly known as iPodder–Apple diidn’t like that …). Simple and easy to use (and Internet freeware).
(Note: for Windows Vista and 7, you need to change the file destination location in the program from the default “My Documents” location to a “Documents” location–this can be done in the ipodder.cfg file or under the program’s preferences, if the program starts for you. (The program has not been updated since XP days, and Vista and 7 have changed the file destination nomenclature a bit.) You also may need to run the program under compatibility mode for Windows XP or earlier, and as Admininistrator.)
