Wow!!! With all the resources and experience Amazon has, you would think they can make it easy to take peoples money. I am down two dollars, and 1 hour 45 minutes. All I can say is 'Wow, wow, wow, WTF. I'm better off buying a CD and saving it on my Hard Drive, like it friggin' 1997. If I had another three hours hours to fight Amazaon, I'd try and get my two bucks back.
I'm talking about downloading a song. I paid for it. And that's as far as it went. I managed to see its in a cloud some where. I never got to play it. I never managed to download it on to my hard drive. I don't know where it is. I do know where my two dollars are, Amazons coffers.
yeah Amazon really sucks as far as their advertisements regarding their products. I downloaded "free" albums, thinking I'd be able to use this Amazon.MP3 player on my Kindle Fire, as it is on all the web pages encouraging me to buy music. Well I downloaded 3 "free" albums, and I go get this "cloud player" and the web site says it is not available/compatible for my device. They obviously don't know what they are doing or they do and they are trying to STEAL from their less technical customers.
In the settings you can make it download the song to your device after every purchase. It's really simple and has worked amazingly well for me up until I got the infamous "No network connection" issue yesterday... =/
You have to have the Amazon downloader program on your computer. Then you can download any song or album you buy to your computer (or other device that has the program installed on it), and as it's in mp3 format, you can then transfer it from the original device to any other device you want to play it on. I've downloaded huge albums using a very weak wifi signal and although they can take a little time, I've not had a problem with it. I have also listened to the songs stored on the Cloud using my Android phone. (I can, in theory, also download them to the phone, but I don't bother since they have to be manually moved to my external SD card or they'd overwhelm my phone's internal storage. I'd just as soon transfer what I want from my PC to my phone's SD card.)
