I have a nano which I barely ever download anything to and haven't done so recently. I use it mainly for music. I also have the 4G iPod shuffle and that is the thing I have trouble with.
I have tried to download music to it through Banshee and that works fine. However podcasts won't download through Banshee. When I download through Rhythmbox I can download the podcast, but it destroys the voice over kit. I have tried GTKPod and that works for nothing and always ruins the iPod voice over kit. So my question is what Media Player that will download Podcast is the most compatible with the iPod shuffle 4G? I am currently downloading and trying UMP.
