Editing the feed for iTunes

    I’ve had a podcast in the iTunes store for some time now (Disembodied Voices was the name), but at some point it became outdated. I asked iTunes to delete it, and it was, my plan being to submit the new feed and start over. (In retrospect, a bad idea.) However, when submitting the podcast, I get an error message saying that the feed has already been submitted.

    The original feed was:


    Here is the feed I want to submit:


    Although I’m now using FeedBurner instead of getting it straight from WordPress, the source still comes from the original. Regardless of which one I try to submit, I get the same error. It’s been suggested that changing the feed’s name might do the trick, but as a WordPress.com user, I don’t think that’s possible.

    It all seems to come down to a glitch in the iTunes store system, which– naturally– I have no power over. Is there a way to get that feed on iTunes now that the original podcast has been removed? Would it be at all possible to have the wizards at WordPress change my feed’s title so I can submit a new one to iTunes? Until then, I seems to be locked out entirely.

    Thanks very much for you time,


    The blog I need help with is thedvcast.com.



    I’m so sorry but we Volunteers have very little information and knowledge of any podcasting issues and how to address them.
