Does a companion CD come with the Kindle version?

I have a related question. I understand physical CD is shipped with physical book orders only.
What about Kindle orders? Is content of the CD available through a download?

I asked that question to Amazon. The answer is no.

If no companion CDs are offered in Kindle books that have that on the cover, where is the "small print" or a note somewhere that states "no companion cd" or "alternate download site"..??

I agree, since nothing is said in the product description, I just assumed we'd get a cd, however I was wrong. My cd only came with the hardcover book, and I have to get that as its a musical book, and there are musical examples described in the book I do need to hear.

This IS a scary concept..I just got a nice shiny 3G kindle for Christmas, and I thought how cool it would be to begin studying the (inexpensive) Kindle edition of Berklee Music Theory. I imagined myself lying back after an evening of practicing to absorb all the necessary tools for my musical goals on this sleek piece of plastic!......But NO CD?! Isn't that like, half the book? Zzroo nailed it(in his comment). They should provide mp3 tracks to go along with your download. Audio examples are Sooooo important for music education! Thanks for listening.

Amazon should provide a service to download companion CDs for kindle books that have CDs. even if you do that part on a computer.

Agree 100 percent! Amazon is ... in effect..... stealing by making the claim they are provding you with a book and in fact it is only part of the book. It seems that it would make sense that including the CD content as part of the kindle service is a "no brainer".... Mostly I like the kindle concept ... but... stealing is stealing... they either need to the customer that kindle edition is only part of the book... or... .provide all the book... they are Amazon... they can figure this out.

I totaly agree

I will try to return a langage book I just bought in kindle edition. Makes no sense without the audio exercices...:-(

Completely agree - there is no excuse for stripping multimedia content from the electronic versions of books. Any reasons for doing that must have to do with rights management, but not technology: it is no rocket science to deliver mp3's to playback devices.
Maybe a nice little lawsuit is in order to convince Amazon to do what's right?

I'm in the same boat with a language learning book. This ought to be a "No Brainer".

how am i supposed to follow the book when it refers to the content on the CD. Amazon should return the money. completely useless

Did Amazon correct this problem ? I purchased some musical books and I would like to get the media files, doesn't make any sense have those books without the media files.
