Thank you CCRDude, the chmod now worked and all media I put in is recognised 🙂

but, if I put new media in the folder, will I aggain have to put the permissions on it ?

[edit: I gues I do 😉 ]

Your home directory isn’t world readable. Anything you put in there isn’t readable by some strange user. There are three ways to fix it — move your mp3 files out of your home directory and put them someplace world readable, make the permissions on the mp3 files such that they are world readable, or make the daemon run as your user (which has permissions to files in your home directory).

Any of those methods are reasonable, but the first and third seem to me to be the most correct. That’s just me, though.
