I read and did everything here, didn't work. Then, I closed iTunes (instead of having it open already), right clicked the file, chose "open in iTunes" and it worked... hope that helps someone :/

Hi....Amazon are really helpful if you call them up. I ended up talking to one of their MP3 experts and she talked me through the proceedure I was having difficulty with....I have no problem downloading now,

Hi.......I had problems with my first download also so you are not alone. I purchased about 20 downloads without knowing where they were going. However it clicked and I realised I had to download itunes....Amazon automatically download their music into your I tunes file then you transfer them to your I Pod.Hope it works for you....

Yes I purchased about £20.00 of downloads didn't press open and lost them....I called Amazon who were really helpful and informed me they would have to download them for me again because I hadn't pressed open. They are really helpful in such situations.

Appears you have to quit and relaunch itunes to get them to work... simple yet maddening!

If you live in America (As i do) i don't think it will work. I was at the concert tonight talking with Frank myself. He said that they just got the rights for it to be sold in America and it should be available the next time iTunes adds new items (This coming Tuesday.) So i am assuming it won't register with iTunes until then.

I've just had this. It is a bit fiddly to grab downloads, James. Like someone already said, after you've selected your tune, you must first make sure you've downloaded the little program from Amazon which pulls your .mp3 file off the web. Although your purchase will automatically show on your Amazon account, it won't show on your computer without having used the Amazon Downloader. So make sure you've got that first. Not sure if you have to grab the downloader each time you buy a single or album. I thought I already had it for my last download but today's purchase didn't come in! I'd paid for my track but couldn't find it on my comp so clicked on the downloader, then the song automatically came in. Don't ignore your purchase, send a quick note to Amazon and, if necessary, they'll lead you through the process of downloading your music.

Hi, can I take issue with all those who seem to think that you must have itunes installed in order for the Amazon d/loader to work correctly? As previously stated, Amazon will d/load all mp3s into My Music/Amazon MP3, it doesn't need Itunes at all but will attempt to add all d/loaded mp3 files into this program at the time of their d/load... hence you'll get a message saying 'File has been successfully d/loaded from Amazon' and then a second message saying either the file has been added to Itunes or that the addition (actually a file copy) has failed... This doesn't mean that the file's not been d/loaded to your PC - it'll still be in the Amazon MP3 folder along with all the other files from Amazon and can be copied across to Itunes whenever you like. As far as I know the Amazon d/loader needs to be d/loaded from Amazon each time you pay for an mp3 d/load... no real problem with that as it only takes a few seconds and the prompt for it is now really 'in your face' while you're heading for the checkout.... I've also found that files won't be copied into Itunes unless this is open... not fussed that much as I use WinAMP, a proper mp3 player! :)
Hope that lot helps somebody!

I've never had a problem downloading mp3s from Amazon.

You all are obviously doing it wrong.

But that's to be expected from iTunes users.
Considering iTunes OS is a$$ backwards, it's to be expected that it's users would be the same way.

I've also never had problems, but I was trying to help, something which YOU haven't done and therefore why you should delete your childish post.

thank you Stuart: i did find your post helpful. I've given up trying with Amazon, though, and now just use Spotify and iTunes: both more reliable.

Hello Mina,

It would help to know what version of the Kindle you have; also, how did you connect to your PC? Via the USB cable, I assume?

Do you have a copy of the User's Guide for your machine saved to your PC? It sounds like you need to reset the Kindle. I'll look it up for mine, I have the Kindle Keyboard version.

BRB! Jen

Right, here's what I get on my User's Manual for my machine:

"My Kindle won't turn on/My Kindle is unresponsive or appears frozen.
Recharge your Kindle using the power adapter that came with the device and plug it into an
AC outlet. Make sure that the charging light next to the micro-USB port lights up while you
are charging. Allow the device to be charged in this manner for at least 30 minutes.
Slide and release the power switch. If your Kindle does not turn on then try resetting it by
doing the following:
1. Disconnect your Kindle from any power source.
2. Slide and hold the power switch for 15 seconds, then release.
Note that the screen will be blank for about 30 seconds while your Kindle restarts."

That's straight from the manual. If you haven't already, Mina, you ought to download a copy for your own Kindle version from Amazon. Hope you get sorted soon!

I had a similar problem, paid for it but it never got to my download file. I just emailed them, explained politely what had happened and I got a lovely reply with loads of help and they opened the link up for me to re-download it.
Your reply to H. Bayliss's post:
To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)

I agree, they're lovely at Amazon. Really helpful. Was it you with the Kindle problem that froze? If not, then I got this alert from a reply you made to me?

Kind regards, Jen

Aimz says:
I originally was able to open my Amazon MP3 tracks with Windows Media Player and download them onto my MP3 player by dragging them into the player folder. However I now have Windows 7, Media Player was faulty and so I ended up removing it. My Amazon MP3s were downloaded into iTunes, but iTunes won't play them - I click and end up with an '!' next to the track.
Any ideas?

Radiojock says:
Yeah, Aimz! In Win7, click the orb and type a track name into the search bar at the bottom of the little screen that opens. You should get an option to open the folder to find your track (which will also give you the rest of them). Then tell iTunes where the tracks are and they'll play properly. I had to do the same thing recently. I also run 7.

I can download into iTunes on my pc, but not on my new iPad, any suggestions. I've tried to access the music on my pc through iCloud, but only about 1/3rd has come through.

I had the same problem. I got around it by converting the file to a WMA format (Windows Media Player) & then transferring to i-Tunes. Pain in the backside but it works.
