Banshee: Could not import CD - Error creating directory: Permission Denied

Asked by Mark Owen on 2011-11-12

I am using 11.10, suddenly Banshee has stopped importing my CDs (it has been working fine until now). Here is the error:
Could not import CD - Error creating directory: Permission Denied.

I don't know if this is linked, but it stopped working after I downloaded the Xubuntu-desktop package. Should I uninstall this and try again?

Run banshee from the terminal, what is output when the error occurs?

When I run banshee from terminal my music library disappears and the CD disappears. These are the last few lines from terminal:

* (Banshee:3749): WARNING **: Error calling get_info: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Solved it - For increased storage capacity, my music library is on an external usb hdd. I noticed that the settings in:

banshee/edit/preferences/source specific/source music/music folder.... had changed. Banshee was searching for the library in the media folder rather than the ext hdd.

Changed settings and everything is fine now. I don't know what caused the settings to change - I didn't touch them.

SOLVED -thanks
