Media Enclosure problem
- Hey all,
I've been wrestling with this problem for about two weeks now. I've
tried seeking help in the Feedburner forums, in the Blogger Help
Group, and with MyDataBus support and have come up empty on all counts.
I have 12 previous podcasts stored on MyDataBus that are now returning
the following error in Feedburner's Podmedic:
Media enclosure not created because: The URL was unavailable or
FeedBurner could not receive a response within 10 seconds.
The above is just an example of one of the 12 files... the entire
problem comprises my podcast's episodes #33-44, inclusive. These
episodes download with no problem from Podmedic (and no problem from
my website either), but of course the episodes will not show up now on

MIME file type was being reported to Feedburner correctly (as

So, I'm now reaching out to y'all to hopefully have some ideas or help
me see something I'm missing. I have no idea if the problem is at
Feeburner, MyDataBus, or Blogger. It's driving me nuts!
I have since switched from MyDataBus to Libsyn, and can eventually
move those 12 episodes if necessary, but I'd like to try to solve this
issue if possible first and leave everything where it is, especially
since it will re-sort all of my episodes, give them new post dates, etc.
