I loaded up on some podcast before heading out on a trip. It's a 60GB video, formatted for the Mac.

Music seems to be playing fine, but some (most) of the Podcast seem to be causing the iPod to shutdown to the apple logo and reboot (hope that explains what is happening).

TV shows seem fine. Shuffle and normal music playback seem ok.

I plan to try a full reset when I get home and can hook up to my iMac, but in the mean time anything I can try while traveling, and has anyone has a similar problem.

BTW, never had so much as a hiccup with this iPod in the past.

Thanks,
Chris

I found the answer... apparently if a podcast is formated in mono it will not play if you have the EQ on. Turning the EQ off seems to be the work around, it works for me. The other option is to reformat the podcast into stereo. This seems to be a fairly well known bug, so hopefully Apple will sort it out eventually in an update.
