K so it might just be the fact I tried to do too much downloading at one time but now I don't know what to do? It's been "processing" for over two days and I just want to delete or restart or something to stop the prolonged processing it prevents me from downloading games and such and it's annoying and yes this is in iTunes ......anybody have any ideas?

Btw I'm talking about podcasts if that's necessary to know xD

iTunes on the iPad?

Try the following, if you haven't already done so.

Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

If that does not work try a restart,

Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

and then a reset if that does not work.

Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
Try checking your downloads field in iTunes on iPad and deleting items that might be stuck there.
If you are looking where I think, try swiping, as if you were crossing out the name. The delete button should show up.
