The other tabs at the top of the iPod Management Screen allow you to sync other kinds of audio content to your Shuffle. They are podcasts, iTunes U educational lectures, and audiobooks. Controlling how they sync is the same for all three.
- Sync - To sync these items, you must click the Sync Podcasts, etc. button at the top of each screen. Do that and the other options will be enabled.
- To sync individual episodes, click the name of the series in the left-hand column. This will show all available episodes. In the right-hand column, click the boxes to the right of the ones you want to sync to your Shuffle.
- Automatically include - Automatically sync content that meets criteria you set: unwatched, newest, newest unwatched, oldest unwatched, and all content or just selected items.
- Books/Podcasts/Collections - Lists all of the series in your iTunes library, and how many episodes of each you have. New or unlistened to episodes have a blue dot to their left. Click each podcast/collection for the list of episodes from that series.
When you've completed making all your sync setting updates, click the Apply button in the bottom right-hand corner of the iTunes window. This will save your settings and update the contents of your Shuffle based on the setting you just created.
