Why is podcasts button missing iPod "more" menu?

by waring25 / January 29, 2013 9:46 AM PST

Do any of you knowledgeable folk have any idea why the podcasts button (and the audiobooks button as well) would have disappeared?

The device in question is an iPod Touch IOS 5.

Thanks in advance,

Do you "shut down" your iPod? I just "turn it off". I only "shut down" my PC.

Problem solved. I don't know what happened but I had to connect my iPod to my computer, click on 'devices' in iTunes, and from there re-download my podcasts.

Thanks for your help, everyone!
