How to manually download podcast

Q: How to manually download podcast

How do I manually download a podcast and have it appear in iTunes (to be synched with my iPod)?

I already know how to subscribe to podcasts.

I tried manually downloading an MP3 for a podcast and then put it in My Music fold that seems to contain all my music and podcasts for iTunes. However, then the file didn't t seem to appear in iTunes.

Does someone know what I am doing wrong?

I did a rebuild of my computer (PC/Win XP/SP3; 1.16 GHz; 640 MB Ram) in September, and since then I've had a devil of a time getting podcasts to download. They start out fine, and then time out after 10 - 15 minutes. It is not one particular podcast that is causing the problem; a few get through but most die.

I have checked my firewall, and itunes is not blocked. Any suggestions on how to proceed next would be appreciated.

I completed a line quality test at dslreports, with dismal results:

I would greatly appreciate some help. I run XP, use IE7 (Mozilla doesn't work either), have AT&T DSL, the wireless has been very slow, so I am directly cabled in to my 2Wire router/modem. I have been having difficulty downloading podcasts lately, it's gone from bad to impossible. I either get a network timeout, hung buffering or it downloads maybe 2 minutes of an hourlong podcast, then closes. The problem exists whether I try via itunes, Win Media Player or Real Player. The podcast servers are fine, as I can tell in the podcast comments section no one else is having a problem, it's my computer/connection. I've tried tweaking some stuff in my network places and my computer properties related to performance, security; firewall, buffering, etc, that seemed to work in the past, but nothing is helping now. Here are some of the diagnostics I've run so far, though what they mean is Greek to me.

I'm trying to download updates through Windows Update, it shows that I have 139 important updates, and 40 optional ones. I selected them and clicked the install button but it got stuck at "Downloading updates (0 kb total, 0% complete)". I cancelled and retried choosing only 24 important updates and the same happened. I tried the check for updates option but it also keeps checking forever.
I also tried downloading updates from Microsoft Download Center but when I try to install them it hangs on "searching for updates on this computer".
I already ran the Microsoft Fix It tool, disabled my anti-virus and firewall, but nothing works.
I cannot install the SURT because it also keeps searching for updates.

I need to update so I can upgrade to Windows 10 - the setup also got stuck while checking for updates, so I was hoping that updating beforehand would do the trick.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem are appreciated.

Hi I'm a university student having a bit of trouble, for a project I have to install Windows 8.1 64 bit on several machines including updates.

As you can imagine updating each machine individually can be extremely time consuming. I was wondering if there's a way to manually download all the latest windows update files and put them in the Windows 8.1 ISO, so that once Windows is installed on the machine it will be up to date.

sorry if I haven't explained myself correctly

I'm using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1.

I want to manually check for updates, make Windows download them if there is any, but wouldn't install at that moment, instead make Windows install them next time I shut it down.

In Windows XP, it was easy. You just selected the option to download. And when you attempt to shut down Windows, it asked if you want to shut down normally, or you want to install updates while shutting down.

However, in Windows 7, I couldn't find a way to do this same behavior. Can you please tell me how to, if there is any way to do it?

A:How to: Manually, download updates but not install

Use this address to find the updates you want
in the right hand corner theres a search box,type in your windows version
then find the specific files you want\need
then save them wherever you want

Handy for reinstalls without having to download everything again
Stop Windows Update in services first
then run your updates
then START WU again and check for updates

Hi guys,

I've just put my Dell Studio back to factory settings after having it for two years and deciding to give it a rebirth. I maintain my laptop very well but always like to do a reset every so often.

The problem I'm having now is that the damn thing wont update from Windows Update. It will identify that there are 76 important or critical downloads, but hangs at 0% downloading.

I went to the MS catalogue and tried to download manually, but even though I had the updates selected in my basket, again, it just hung on 0%.

I've ran Kasperskys TDS, the Malicious Tool Removal MS thingy-ma-jig, ran an sfc check where it did note there were corrupt files but it couldn't fix them. The Fix It link to the MS Update Not Working thing found no problems either.

So, I'm scratching my head and going to do a restart and see what's going on.

Any help greatly appreciated as this is doing my nut in.



Interestingly, I've just reset and it's telling me the system had to be restarted to finish installing updates, but when you click on it for more info, there's no updates listed. Bloody liar.

A:Will not download Updates automatically or manually via MS Catalogue

Welcom to the forum
If you'r facing a problem in WU then use the tool provided by MS to resolve this problem:

Download: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [February 2012] - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

If after that the problem persist and you say that you reset every so often, then consider to dowload your same version of your OS from:

Good luck

Hi all,

I use Linux and CUPS to provide free and stable networking printing shares for our community centre. Its easy to connection windows xp clients to the linux printer server, windows 7 is a pain, I have a work around, but would like to make it more streamlined.

I can get some older printers that do not have official windows 7 drivers working by using windows update during the driver selection phase of the printer set-up procedure. And selecting a slightly different printer from the list of available windows update drivers.

While this method works, there is a delay of between 5-10 minutes after clicking the windows update button before the list of drivers appears.

I would like to know if its possible to do any of the following 2 ideas:

1. manually access these driver files on Microsoft website somewhere, and download them for latter use.

2. Find where windows 7 saves the downloaded driver files and package them some how so they can be re-distributed.

As always your comments/suggestions are very welcome.

I don't think there is a way to do that I would recommend that you set up a domain and be the system administrator for all fo the Windows 7 pcs, so you can install all of the updates on all of the computers at the same time.

I love listening to podcasts. I've been listening to them for many years. I've been using my old Zune HD for quite a while to listen to podcasts. Well, either it or the Zune software is beginning to get unreliable. Sometimes it syncs podcasts, sometimes it doesn't.
So its time to me to move my podcasting activities to my Lumia 640. I'm going to give the Podcast app that comes with Windows 10 Mobile a try. I understand the basics, but would like some help with some of the operation. For example, if I select a podcast to listen to or watch, does the Podcast app download it? If not, how do I download it? This is quite important because of my commute. I ride a train which takes me through several miles and a long period of time, where there's no Internet connectivity, no cell reception, etc. So does it download all podcasts?
Another question, after listening to a podcast or watching a video podcast, does the Podcast app delete the podcast from my Lumia?

A:Would like some guidance on using the Windows 10 Podcast app

if it still works the same way, the podcast app automatically download episodes that you subscribe to and there is a setting for how far back (or how many episodes back) you want to keep. it will then delete the oldest one once it's reach the limit. after you listen to them the app just marks it as heard, I don't think it deletes them until the limit is reached. you can choose to download specific episodes too if you need to.
having said that, I haven't used the app in a little while so it might be a bit different now, commute too short now lol (well, it's a blessing :P)

HI 3night.

What podcast software you require depends on exactly what you wish to do with the software. Do you only want to listen to podcasts? If so there are many choices, a lot of them free, to choose from.

If you want to publish or edit podcasts you need to be a bit more selective in your choice of software.

Here are a few links to software suggestions for you to have a look at:

In iTunes (7) how do you view the names of individual episodes of each show? My screen only shows main program headings, for instance it says "dl.TV iPod video," but underneath there are no entries for individual episodes to choose from. That is just an example, I don't KNOW which shows have new episodes because I can't see any!

It it set to keep all episodes of podcasts. I subscribed to 15 and see new episodes download all the time. My podcast count goes up and up. But I don't know what I have, not seeing a list. When I click on a program name the audio or video of the first episode I downloaded starts playing. I don't have very many, just started ipod and iTunes a few weeks ago. What am I doing wrong?

Hi guys! Two days ago, my computer recently started acting strangely. First, a strange podcast started being broadcasted through my speakers. I had firefox open and was just checking my email. I was like "what in the world?" and pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del. I looked under Processes ad found three "iexplore.exe" processes running. I then clicked "End Process" for each of them, and the podcast stopped. I then tried running Avira Antivir to scan for viruses and after leaving the computer on for about an hour, I came back to it, only to see that it was frozen. I could move my mouse, but nothing else. This has now happened three times. It seems like each time I run Avira, the computer freezes and I end up having to reset the power. Also, the "iexplore.exe" processes keep coming back every 15 or so minutes, with a weird podcast starting about 5 minutes after the process starts. Another thing is that even if I don't run the Avira Antivir program to scan for viruses, my computer STILL freezes up randomly when I'm on it. I also seem to be getting lag spikes.

Does anyone know what I should do?

So I was listening to Daniel interview the HP X3 project lead and when I snapped the app to the right to be able to do something else (it's an audio stream after all) the podcast stopped playing. It didn't pause it stopped altogether.
I started to play the podcast again and just used the seek bar to locate where I was so I could continue listening. I decided not to touch the app window but rather use the taskbar to switch between WC and other apps.
When the podcast was close to ending I maximized the WC app window to prepare to read something else and once again it stopped!
Not sure what the issue is but please look into it, WC.
Thank you.

I do a lot of work on customer machines at a computer shop, and one of the most frustrating issues I run into is when I run SFC on a computer and it reports that it found errors and was unable to fix them.

Originally I intended to write a program to automatically pull the [SR] reported files from the installation media and replace the broken ones on the system, however, when I run the command from the tutorial:

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

After an unsuccessful SFC attempt, even when it reports files that could not be fixed, I never turn up anything, anyone know why I don't get the [SR] tags in my CBS.log?

I'm really in need of a motherboard upgrade, but until then....

I'm running XP Sp3; I have an An ASUS P4S333. this mainboard came out just before USB2.0. As luck would have it, today I'm in need of USB 2.0 (or better..LOL)

I need to change the IRQ assigned to a specialize audio audio card. It must sit on it's own, and currently it's sharing 16. I cannot unselect "Use Automatuc Setting" in Devmgmt to allow me to do this. I am logged in as administrator.

I have spent most of the morning moving cards around to try and resolve this, to no avail. I have also tried within the BIOS to force IRQ's to specific PCI slots, again with no success. The best I've been able to do is get the audio card off of IRQ18 to IRQ 16. In both scenarios, the IRQ is shared with something else. I have 6 PCI slots and 1 AGP slot. At the moment, after shuffling the PCIcard deck, AGP is occupied as are PCI 1,2,4, and 6. 1 and 5 are paired, as are 2 and 6.

A couple of suggestions for configuring this motherboard would be greatly appreciated.

Only thing is I had no idea XP was no longer supported with many things. Is there a way to update it? It's in pretty good shape, just old.

A:How to manually update my XP?

If you just run Windows update as normal you will get all the updates that are available for XP.  Not being in support just means that Microsoft will not be making any more updates, existing ones will still download.As far as making it better, I can't really think of anything unfortunately.  It's certainly not worth the cost of a more modern OS and that CPU will be a major limitation despite any upgrades you try.Of course, you can always create a thread on this forum about why your desktop "died" - We may be able to help you get that up and running again.

First off, I'm plugged into a battery backup power supply. (I don't know if that's related or not.)

Also, I think my Windows Update may have something to do with it as well. The last couple times it's happened the yellow Windows Update icon popped up in my taskbar. I put off downloading the update because I didn't want to restart my PC. I woke up this morning and my PC was restarted without me doing so.

I seriously doubt it's a heat problem. My temps are moderate.

Is it possible that it's actually something that I can change by going into my Control panel and changing settings?

Is the RAM also being clocked at 1333? That's what I've seen in the past few motherboards I've used. Setting the BIOS to use the XMP or manual settings were required to get higher frequencies.

So GMAbooster is supposed to be a program that can speed up your graphics for better performance, but i have a Toshiba Satallite c655-s5132 that has a Intel GMA x4500 but GMAbooster hasn't released one for that yet (but yet the show it on the download page) they say they plan to release it but i don't know when and how long its been sence the said they planned on releasing it.

So my question is:

Can you do the samething the GMAbooster does but manually?
I mean i play this one game Combat Arms, the computer i use it just about good to play on Combat arms but when the room is full (16 players max) the game slows down and it hard to play, or when i get a gun fight with one person it slows down abit but enough to affect my skills.

A:Can i manually do what the GMAbooster does?

The short answer? Yes. Anything that software can do to your computer you should be able to do manually. However, if your device is under warranty, using that software, or doing anything it can do manually would almost certainly void it.

I'm not an expert on this sort of thing though, so for actually accomplishing it you would have to ask someone else. I'm sorry if my answer is a bit less than helpful, but I don't want to provide any in-accurate information and potentially cause you to harm your computer.

Reading and searching for information about defragmenting has only caused me more confusion. I have been reading a lot about Win 7 automatic defrag etc. My old Vista PC has also an option where you set up a schedule for automatic defragmenting, so I don't see how Win 7 is different in that aspect...

I have built this gaming PC just a month ago. I have looked at the defrag schedule for both my boot drive and other drive and twice I have seen the boot drive say 4% defrag. Other times, it always shows as 0%.

- What does the above mean?
- I have the defrag set to a monthly schedule for 1st day of the month at midnight. Will I have to leave my PC fully powered on for this to take effect?
- Some people say defragging is not necessary for modern hard drives any more. So is it or is it not?
- I do have about 50GB of data on the boot drive (Velociraptor) and 500 GB of pictures, movies, music, games on the other drive. Is it necessary to defrag them?
- Should I do this manually because my computer is not always on during the "scheduled" defrag time?

Thank you.

Windows 7 is a way more efficient running OS than the old XP or Vista.
I have Perfect Disk 12.5 and every time I'm curious to how defraged my drives are and analyze them they are @ 1% defraged but I still defrag every so often just for chits and giggles cause the system doesn't need to be defraged I just do it cause I started the program and may as well use it.

Have you done a registry search?

Go to Start > Run, and type:


Look under Edit for the Find entry. Enter a search term that is specific to that program, like the program's name, or even the manufacturer if that is the only program you have from that company. Remove the entries that refer specifically to that program. Be careful not to remove entried that are not specific to that program. If the name has the word "system" in it, for example, you obviously should not delete all entries containing that word.

Use F3 to continue the search after each find.

Is the program still in Add/Remove?

Another thing you could try is a safe registry cleaner:

I have just completed a recovery on an HP desktop. Started checking for updates and as we all know that takes a really long time (24+ hours). In my system properties it says 7 Home Premium and SP1. In the installed updates screen it says there are 12 updates only that date back to 6-7-2011.

How can I know that SP1 is actually installed?

If it is not actually installed, would it be best to manually download and install? Would this help with the time it takes to search for updates?

A:Manually install SP1?

Go to Control Panel/System

Look under "Windows Edition" at that location. If SP1 is installed, it should say "Service Pack 1".

It's downloadable as an ISO.

The 64 bit English version is named windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe

It's 903 MB in size. I'd guess you can find it and download it with a Google search. That's what I'd try to do if I knew it was not already installed.

If by "recovery", you mean some sort of restore to factory condition using an HP partition or menus and applications, I'd assume you have SP1 if the machine shipped with SP1.

Hi all,

I have two network connections on my laptop - one wired and one wifi. Naturally, windows selects the wired connection as the default route (default interface) everytime. I am experimenting with finding a mechanism to select which interface to use without physically disconnecting one of them. Each NIC has a local static IP


I've created a client/server app: the client(s) exists on the computer specified with the two NICs. The server is on a separate computer that is also on the home network but not the same machine. Basically, I am looking for a way to pick different routes for the clients - not necessarily load balancing but load choice I guess.

I believe I am going to have to use the 'route' command or the 'netsh' command, but every document I've read on them is pretty crappy or I just didn't understand them (I understand the conepts of routing/interfaces, etc). When I use the 'route' every time I get a response saying that interface does not exist but I am sure I am typing everything in correctly. Don't know what else to do...

The display driver is installed successfully, but after rebooting the system, the driver is not activated. Your graphics board requires a free IRQ to work properly.
Please assign a unique IRQ to the slot which is related to
your graphics board. Be sure to have no hardware conlicts with other installed hardware components.

If I set the Enable VGA thing in my BIOS, is that right? That way I get no buttons. Otherwise, as the readme says, the card will not start, ! in device manager.

How do I determine subnet manually?

This is more of a question of how than what. Since there are calculators on how to do this on the internet.

If one has been assigned a Class B address (142.63.x.x), and you need to be able to designate up to 8,000 hosts per subnet. What subnet mask specification would allow for the most possible subnets?

How did you determine your subnet mask specification?


Excluding reserved addresses, how many addresses would be available for host assignment in each subnet? In total for all subnets?

What would be the last assignable address of the first subnet, and what would be first assignable address of the last subnet?

A:How do I determine subnet manually?

Sounds like homework to me

Here is a great site that teaches the basics of subnetting in an easy to learn lecture format.

Hi,I've posted before about my PC crashing constantly (a couple of months ago) and I thought we had fixed the problem with the driver updates, etc that I was told to do, but my machine is crashing worse than ever now.I have tried everything I can think of & am completely lost as to what to do to make it work. A friend told me to scan my system with RegCure & it shoed up the following items that apparently have errors.I didn't want to purchase the program though so I have no idea what they mean or how to fix them... or even if they are things that could be crashing my system.Also tried looking up the event viewer, but regardless of going through the tutorial on it, I am still finding it beyond confusing.Any help would be appreciated. TIA.

A:Pc Keeps Freezing & Has To Be Manually Re-booted

It was wise of you not to "fix" anything with RegCure as it is a registry cleaner. Unless you know exactly what you are doing you could cause programs to not work or even the operating system by using registry cleaners. The authors of registry cleaners have different ideas of what "shouldn't" be there, and they have no clue about what is actually on your computer. I manage to wreck my Adobe software by using one. Fortunately, I had backed up my registry and I was able to undo the damage.Can you post a link to your previous thread so we can see what was done? Also, please tell us what you have done since then.Orange Blossom

Good day everyone

I am a server and network administrator for a very tiny firm for a year odd already.

We have 1 Domain Controller server, 1 Backup (running acronis management console) and Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.5 server, and 3 other application server - all are having static manually configured IP addresses.

However during one of our recent application server reboot, it pop out an alert stating there is a conflict with some others on the network. I have checked through all the machines and have ensured all are having different ip address.

I proceeded to check the Event Viewer for more information, and it showed a particular machine having certain Ethernet Mac address causing the conflict. I went on to individual machine and fired up the CMD, and issued 'getmac /v' to get it's ethernet mac address and found the culprit - let's call this 'Server G'.

I went into 'Server G' Network Connection > LAN settings > TCP/IP to change the IP address. To my surprise, the IP address is showing the correct address intended for 'Server G' - I have also ensured no other machines having the same ip address. No mistake - on 'Server G', I opened up the CMD, and check the ip address by 'ipconfig /all', and to my horror, it showed a different address than the one input into the LAN Settings TCP/IP windows.

What happened?

If this issue has been resolved by another thread, please kindly point me to it, I wi... Read more

A:ip conflict with manually configured ip

odd but try a stack reset. May not help, but won't hurt.

TCP/IP stack repair options.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

Failing this come back with operating system on Server G and post the ipconfig/all and if possible a screen shot of the LAN TCP/IP screens?

Oh and sorry if this is obvious but there are not 2 lan cards on the server? One part of motherboard maybe and the other a NIC PCI card?

Every time I download and then restart - then attempt to go back

online my modem gets knocked off line. If I go to device manager -

click on the modem/properties/resources/configure

manually/okay/then restart (or reboot) I can then get back on

line. The gal at the modem company says it is probably because I

reformatted my hard drive while the modem was still connected

but outside of that she didn't seem to know for sure? Anyone

have any ideas?

My question is as follows:
(System specs: see signature)

In Internet Explorer (V. 5.50.4807.2300) there is an inbuilt interface that theoretically should enable one to organize the links & the folders in one's 'faborites' folder as one's heart should desire. This thing sucks. I mean, it behaves like a lab rat on LSD.

I know I can move items into folders manually (by directly accessing the 'favorites' folder), but I don't seem to be able to organize items within folders manually.

So, how can that be accomplished?

A:Manually organizing favorites in IE5

Ya know, organizing Favorites in IE has always been a pain. The only thing I can offer is to just make the folders you want and drag and drop the links you want into them. Then move the folders around in the order you like them. It takes a little effort. I have seen some third party software that organizes links for you and even checks to see if the links still are valid. Do a GOOGLE and see what pops up.
