iTunes Download Trouble
If iTunes won’t download the program, first login to your account at steelonsteel.com and check that your subscription is current and active and that you can download the show from there.

If the feed displays the episodes but you are unable to download, you may need to update the stored login info for the podcast.
If you are using a Mac, the password is stored in your Keychain, found in Applications>Utilities>Keychain.app. Open the Keychain and search for Steel on Steel. Either delete the entry or modify the login info. You may need to remove the Steel on Steel podcast from your iTunes Podcast Library and set it back up. Be sure to use correct login information and remember, login info is case-sensitive.
PC users will have to unsubscribe from the podcast in iTunes, delete it from the library, and resubscribe. Afterward, you will need to re-enter your Steel on Steel login info. Please note: Do not unsubscribe from your membership at steelonsteel.com and attempt to resubscribe. The download issue is with the stored login info in iTunes.
