With Cloud reader I am able to "download and pin" only one third of my books. Generally I'll get the error: "Network Connection Error: A connection error occurred. Please try again later." but occasionally it will say instead: "Error Opening Content: An error occurred while attempting to open the selected item. Please try again later."

Sometimes if I try enough times, it will download, but there remain some persistent titles that refuse to cooperate. I am using Google's Chrome browser on an Ubuntu Linux (11.10)/KDE environment. My CPU is Intel.

Does anyone else experience the same problem? Any ideas folks?

I am having the same problem using Chrome 15.0.874.106 on WIndows 7. Very annoying.

I never resolved it. I just stop using the program. I assume they're putting all their development into their new product line instead.

I bought a kindle book just to read it on my PC, so that I can enlarge its photographs, but and I cannot download the book using Cloud Reader.

Sometimes I can read some pages online, not often, but I can never download it. I always get the infamous "Network Connection Error A connection error ocurred. Please try again later." The book has plenty of photographs, so, perhaps the problem is related to the size of the file to be downloaded (around 40 MB, says my Android device).

I tried, and failed, to download, using both, Firefox and Chrome (in an Ubuntu Linux PC). Other smaller books download with no problem.

I'm in South Africa - I'm starting to suspect this is a copyright zone error that Amazon are keeping quiet - It's too reproducible and consistent (100%) to be anything but intentional.
