the file was short again today - don't know why it does that sometimes. delete the short file (if you got it before i fixed it) and then resubscribe.

I just unsubscribed and resubscribed and I still only get a 1:13 long episode. It seems that the MP3 on the CNET server is still the short one. Sad

i read this topic, and then i downloaded the file...
it was short! 1 minute long...
then i read "resubscribe"

you don't have to resubscribe, i guess... just delete it and re-download it...

I'm not sure this will works for everyone, but instead of unsubscribing and subscribing again you can do this:

1. Delete the file iTunes folder;
2. On iTunes hold SHIFT and click on the little arrow before the podcast name.
3. Done. That will make iTunes to find the missing files on the podcast directory and download 'em again.
