Does anyone know if the knew version 5.0.4 fixes the issue with storing podcast titles in the regular songh list. 5.0.0 messed me up by deciding to allow my podcasts be a part of my regular listening list. So now when I shuffle my music, I get a podcast show up now and then. I hate that. I prefer podcasts to only be in the podcasts menu.

Dont even get me started on apple… they are really starting to p*** me off! I just fixed my computer over the wknd due to other Apple OS problems and when i did the system updater I (unfortunately) installed iTunes 5.0.1 (4) - now CANNOT burn CDs (I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-109).

I was able to get around this by using Roxio Toast Titanium 6.0.7 (which has NEVER failed me, not once) by dragging my audio files over to the Toast window and ...walah! was able to burn my music files. You can even play the audio files in Toast if you want to double check your song list before you “burn”. Sorry windows users Toast is for Mac. It retails for about $80
