I think the answer here over the loses is back them up make a copy immediately to another device. Backup and with belt and braces if possible. It is sods law, you will loose data and it will be at the most inconvenient time with the worst possible consequences.

Hi, I had a similar problem, except that it was my internet connection that crashed. I contacted Amazon customer service and they re-emailed me a link to download my tunes. They were very good about it. Please contact them and see what they say.

An opportunity to try again would definitely be an attractive feature. Personally I've had no problems at all with downloads, and I always keep back-up copies on two different computers, on my MP3 player and on a USB pen. That's one of the attractive features of Amazon downloads; no DRM of any sort whatsoever - you can make as many copies as you like (for legitimate back-up purposes, obviously).

Email Amazon customer services. I have found them very helpful every time something went wrong with my downloads.

Hi. Never commented on here before, but tonight I bought a couple of albums through Amazon on my PC. At bedtime I fancy listening to one, but can't be doing with turning PC on to sync iTunes across my house to other devices, so I thought I would quickly log onto Amazon and download the albums direct to this device (Mac), much like I would through iTunes or Audible (which is an Amazon owned company now? It has a fantastic cross device service - I download my books directly to whichever device I fancy listening on, and allows multiple downloads). Alas I cannot. My bad for presuming I could, but I do feel disappointed that tomorrow I will have to faff about syncing my library across machines and backing up. Granted, I need to run a backup anyway.. but still. I hope amazon change this soon, as I find the speedy downloads from the website really nifty.

I too have had problems, but the customer service desk have always assisted me with them, on downloading music. I must say that I do agree with the thoughts of others that you should be given a chance to re download purchased songs, and albums, bought from Amazon. I am sure a lot more people would use Amazon to purchase downloaded music if they did. We can only hope that someone with authority at Amazon reads these posts and changes their current policy,

ridiculousness that you can't download more than once, won't be using this service again.

I lost my phone, read this forum and thought all hope was lost. I chatted online to the customer service and they called my home phone. The girl on the other end sat there and patiently made every album and single I've ever downloaded from Amazon available to re download (about 5gb). Honestly cannot slate them for that.

Technology, isn't it wonderful, they keep us buying more and more, without a back-up plan! Buy the CD, that way you can re-upload anytime you want to. I have had 4-5 Hard drives FAIL over the years, wait till your System Hard Drive fails on your computer, that is really fun to remedy.

Confirmed, the cloud player automatically imports all previous MP3 purchases, and you can then redownload them from the player. Also works on the Android app.

Google "Amaazon Cloud Player" and follow the instructions.
Log on as if you were logging on to Amazon and click on "Import your purchases".
Good Luck everybody

if you have not recieved what you paid for it is not a sob story it is breaking the law suppling nothing but taking money

I had the same problem, useless.

Spacepig says:
Hmm, but the OP had received what he had paid for hadn't he/she? But then the hard drive he had saved them on crashed and he lost them. So, if you buy a CD for example from HMV, and then lose it, are HMV responsible for replacing it? Lets try it and see what they say?

But, surely this new Cloud thing should solve that problem? I don't really know, as I don't live in the UK, I can't get downloads anyway so I can't try it out.

Good point, Flik - this is just the latest step in amazon's transformation to their greed-driven heroes at apple! Play and hmv are still managing to make a profit without being ultra-greedy!

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Oct 2012 14:50:43 BDT
Here in the UK and hmvdigital let you keep all your downloads, so you can re-download from your purchase history without having to use a sob-story. Apple are successful but hated for their greed, and rightly so!

Thought I'd post this to help others.

If you follow the link in your order to the track/album title there is a link there to launch the Amazon Cloud Player, from there there is a link on the left called Purchased. If you click on that all your purchased tracks are there and you can select and download them from that screen.

I don't know if there is a limit on the number of downloads, but personally I will be backing all my songs up, and maybe even start using Spotify to buy music as they seem to be more reasonable on access.

Hope this helps

If you want to re-download your songs, just go to the Amazon Cloud Player, select Albums, then choose the album you want, then click the select all box, then click the download button. How any of you can not know this is very silly!

Can't you just use the Amazon Cloud to download them again? I downloaded mine on my phone and can't get them onto the computer so as to actually listen to them -.-

I downloaded two pieces of classical music last night but have not received any confirmation of this.
