Why does my iPhone iPod player lose its place when I sync?

Whenever I sync my iPhone, my place in the various PodCasts I listen to is lost (well, synched to the position in iTunes which, because I don't use iTunes to listen to PodCasts, is zero).

"I've been running into this issue myself since upgrading to 3.0, and it feels like a bug. I'm not sure if the problem is with iTunes or the iPhone, and I don't know of a workaround.

The best thing you can do is send feedback to Apple, or (if you're feeling ambitious) reduce the problem to a reproducible test case and file a bug."

"I can only imagine that this is related to the version of iTunes or the iPhone OS version you are running.

I have an iPhone 3G which I sync everyday with podcasts using iTunes 8.2.1 and it has yet to lose my position in a podcast.

The only setting I know off on the iPhone (OS3) is for remembering the position of movies.

Settings
iPod
Video
Start Playing

I know OS3 brought a lot of enhancements to the iPod application so it may be one of the new features."

"I have a similar issue. It seems to be been introduced since I have upgraded my phone to 3GS. Maybe it is a combination of iPhone 3GS and Firmware 3.0.

I don't have this problem with my 1st Generation iPhone with Firmware 3.0.

This Issue has been resolved in iPhone 3.1 and iTunes 9."
