Why am I getting permission denied errors on podcasts I downloaded within Banshee

ebisumartin
Banshee list,

First, I go to the Podcasts section and add a new feed and download
some episodes. I have about 50 podcasts downloaded.

Then I connect my Android device, select to "Sync entire library" for
podcasts, then I hit the "Sync" button.

28 don't transfer, and in the error report, it says "Error opening
file... permission denied".

How is it possible that I do not have permission to copy a file to my
device within Banshee when I used Banshee to get the file in the first
place?

More importantly, how do I solve this?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

This might be caused by the fact that Banshee marks podcast files as
read-only, and so they end up as being also read-only on the device.
Changing the permissions on the device might help.

See the following bug for more information :

Bertrand,

Thanks for responding.

From what I can tell, there is no obvious benefit, and some
significant downside to marking the files read only.

Is it worth applying the patch, or will this be changed (I might say
"fixed") in future Banshee releases?

Bertrand,

By the way, I tried running chmod 777 ~/Podcasts/, as suggested in the
bug report, but that hasn't helped.
