I am new to Apple and new to the iPad (I have an iPad 2 (and an iPod). I operate a PC using Windows XP professional. I recently downloaded and installed the latest version of iTunes on my PC with my iPad connected, and this now includes iCloud. I have two problems with my iPad. Firstly, I downloaded wirelessly a number of Free Podcasts from iTunes onto my iPad. None will play at the correct speed - they are too fast. The second problem is that I tried to download a Veterans Chronicles Podcast wirelessly onto the iPad. It refuses to download `at this time`. If I try `retry` it still fails to download. If I indicate `Done` it stops trying to download. My iPad continues to show that there is 1 download outstanding (if I click on it shows me the Podcast album cover) and I cannot get rid of it. Can anyone help?
