Default Podcasts no longer download

Please Login to Remove!

None of my subscribed podcasts download any more since I upgraded to OS 6. Any ideas?

Also, in the options, it lets you allocate memory on the SD media card for storage of the down loaded audio. Max limit is 32 MB. some of the podcasts i want to d/l are like 33 MB? Can this be increased?

Any help to get podcasts working again is appreciated.

There is no way that I know of to increase the size limit, except to use a different app. I recommend Podtrapper by Versitile Monkey.

I wasn't aware there is a limit. Can you post a link to documentation? I took a quick look and I see I have some audio podcasts that are 50+ and 70+ MB, and video podcasts that are 200, 300, and 400MB.

As far as the download failures, I would try several things, maybe in no particular order:

- Unsubcribe from the podcasts, do a hard reset, and then subscribe again.

- Delete all the files in the cache folder in the podcasts folder, and any non-media files in the media folder in the podcasts folder.

- Delete the podcasts app and the podcasts folder, hard reset, and install the podcasts app again. (But I doubt you need to do this. Do it as a last resort.)

Re the limit, When I open the BB Podcast player and go to Options menu, in the General tab there is a menu for built-in media storage limit. Choices are 5, 15 or 32 MB.

I'll try some of these fixes, thanks guys.

Interesting. I don't have that setting option. I've never noticed it with older versions, either. I did change the storage location from media card to device memory, thinking that may enable that option, but it didn't.

If you have a media card installed, what happens if you change the storage location to media card?
