Because enough of the file has been downloaded to be recognised enough the little bit you do get is playable.. but what you have to do is unsubscribe from the podcast then resubscribe, then just select the one you want and clear off the ones you don't want.

Strange, but I have tried to work out where the issue is and I haven't been able to figure out where it falls apart. I don't think it is CNET because the whole file is there, and I am wondering if it is ITunes that clips it.

My best guess...

Why this happens is that the badnwidth is getting sucked up by a bunch of people downloading at once and for some reason iTunes gives up. That's just a guess. I do know that the download is slower at certain times more than others because of load issues.

i think this is right..alot of times when it gets cut off its because it is taking forever to d/l.

i read somewhere that the new itunes supports bittorrent? anyone hear of this or know how it works/how to use

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
