Some Episodes are missing or not downloading at all


If you have accidentally deleted episodes in iTunes or if they did not download properly, then there is a simple trick that will allow you to bring these episodes back. Please note that you need iTunes Version 9.0 or greater for this to work.

This video is the tutorial for The PDU Podcast, but it's exactly the same for The Agile PrepCast:

If you do not wish to update iTunes or if you are not using iTunes at all, then try the following solutions:

1. Start Fresh

This means that you will be removing the Agile PrepCast from your iTunes and then add it again. Here is how:

  • Open iTunes
  • Right click on the Agile PrepCast
  • Delete it and select "move files to recycle bin"
  • Close iTunes
  • Open iTunes
  • Select "Advanced > Subscribe to Podcast"
  • Find the welcome message that you received after you purchased the Agile PrepCast. Copy your personal URL from that message into the popup window.
  • Click OK and the Agile PrepCast is now added to your iTunes again.
  • Click the GET ALL button.
  • Now click on the downloads page and disallow simultaneous downloads. See here how that is done .
  • The episodes will now download one by one.

Please note that this will work only as long as your Agile PrepCast account is still active.

2. Manual Download in Firefox and Internet Explorer

If you use Firefox (at least version 2.x) or Internet Explorer (at least version 7.x) then you can manually download the missing episodes:

  • Find the "Welcome" email that was sent to you by the Agile PrepCast right after you signed up.
  • This email contains your personal URL.
  • Open this URL in Firefox or IE7 and it will format the page nicely for you
  • Find the missing episode(s)
  • Right-click onto the episode files and select "Save Target As..."
  • Save them to your hard drive
  • Now drag&drop the files into iTunes

3. Use a News Aggregator

If you have a News Aggregator account - for instance with Yahoo - then you can go that route.

  • Find the "Welcome" email that was sent to you by the Agile PrepCast right after you signed up.
  • This email contains your personal URL.
  • Copy/paste this URL into your reader account.
  • You can now see all episodes in your reader and will be able to right click / download the episodes that you are missing.
  • Now drag&drop the files into iTunes

The good thing with the online readers is, that you can also use them to listen to the episodes from wherever you have access

4. Use Juice Receiver

Even though we recommend iTunes for it's simple user interface, there are people who prefer Juice.
