iTunes Problem with Downloading Podcasts

I don't know how likely this is to get a response but is anybody else lately having problems with downloading podcasts via iTunes on Windows?

 

Up until the last month I've always gone to the podcast I want, clicked the 'Get' button and the podcast has downloaded with no problems however recently whenever I click the 'Get' button nothing happens and no download starts.

 

What makes this weird is that the Podcast in question (Attitude Era Podcast) lets me download the 4 most recent episodes but doesn't work for anything beyond that in the archive, likewise it seems the other ones I listen to (Podiots/Co-Optional Podcast) lets me download some episodes but not others.

 

I've tried on two different laptops (Windows 7/8.1) and with an old version of iTunes as well as the latest version but I cannot find a fix.

You're on the latest version of iTunes, right? And you only have Windows 7 and 8.1?

 

I have Windows 10 but I haven't tried downloading Podcasts to my PC.

 

I can try it tomorrow to see if it works for me... perhaps it's a compatibility issue between iTunes and Windows.

Correct Slamma, I'm on the latest version of iTunes on two laptops (one running 7 and one running 8.1)

 

I don't have any problems downloading the latest 3/4 podcasts from the previously mentioned Attitude Era Podcast but anything older than King of the Ring 1997 just does not work when I press the 'Get' button, it seemingly all stated about a month ago but I haven't noticed any problems with anything else.

 

Are you signed in when you tried it Slamma? I don't have an account (never needed one) so am wondering if that might help even though I can download some without one.

Yes, I had several podcasts already downloaded when I looked. They were Podcasts I had subscribed to on my phone so I guess iTunes knew they needed to be downloaded.

 

First time I had opened the Podcast section within iTunes though.
