    Hi guys n gals.
    Just dragged & dropped a video podcast onto my iTouch. Did not pass through the iTunes on my Macbook (just dropped it straight from the desktop onto the Touch). It shows up under movies on my Touch & plays fine but....
    I can't delete it! It doesn't show up under Movies or TV Shows on my
    Devices->iPod Touch under iTunes. So as the only way to move & delete stuff is via iTunes, I can't delete it??
    This seems like nonsense. How do I find it? Or do I have to wait for the whole thing to be jailbroken i.e. someone else to fix Apple's bugs?
    Thanks

    Worked it out....

    Sorry. With a large amount of fiddling have worked out how to do it. Under the Movie menu, gently stroking the area to the right of the thumbnail of the movie you want to delete from right to left brings up a red button labelled 'delete' which if you press, the file disappears. Is this documented anywhere?

    Apple rushed this release so much, and wasn't thinking at ALL about podcasting on it. The iTunes WiFi Music Store should have also had the ability to SUBSCRIBE to podcasts, and have the subscriptions sync back to iTunes on your Mac/PC when connected. Thankfully this can be done in a Software Update in the future

    A lot of features are not documented so we are still finding new features
