It's a brilliant move. For me, I didn't get but 28 songs "added" -- I switched over to buying almost exclusively amazon mp3 and itunes music years ago. But a friend of mine checked his account, and he had songs from 161 CDs showing up in his mp3 player. His amazon cloud library went from zero to over 1000 songs instantly.

Now, most of those songs are in his iTunes library, ripped from the CDs years ago. But here's the point: he has been looking to transition to cloud storage for his music library, considering iTunes Match and Google Play. Amazon was not even on his library for cloud music --though he primarily uses them for streaming video and Kindle books.

Now, he is probably going to make the switch and use amazon's cloud storage for his music. It works on browsers, and it has a nice iPhone app. Had amazon not made this move, they wouldn't have captured this aspect of his business.

The same thing will happen with books at some point, where we get a digital copy and a hard copy. The ebook industry is still pretty young compared to digital music sales. They're all still working out the kinks.

You can, indeed, download them. I did last night, for the Yo Yo Ma collection I bought from them several years ago on CD, after discovering all this in the "cloud player". The downloading software is a little buggy (at least on 64 bit Windows), but downloading through the cloud player worked fine.

Not everything I've bought was included, though.

I haven't bought any paper books from Amazon, but I have from Book Depository (UK company) owned by Amazon since last year.

So, it would be grand if Amazon adopts the buy one format get another format to hard books into ebooks.

Anyone know if the CD/MP3 plan works outside of the US?

Wondering about how it could work in all countries that Amazon operates in .....

I think the only place they sell MP3's is the US and UK isn't it? Doesn't look like the UK site is offering this option at all.

Is it still illegal to rip CD's in the UK?

I am so happy about this new program--I find myself hoping that it is indicative of how Amazon hopes to push the publishers down the road. It's the sort of thing we all asked for back when mp3s were first making their mark, and Amazon's brought it about. Maybe they'll be able to do the same with books. Imagine, a non-Kindle owner being told, "You now have Kindle copies of your books waiting for you; buy a Kindle and you've got a library ready."

I am happy to report that this evening I have found six AutoRip albums in my Amazon Cloud.

Unfortunately, three of the six are Christmas albums, so it will be eleven months before I enjoy them!

I thought there would be more, but perhaps many of my purchases have been from Marketplace Sellers.

From 1997 to about 2007, many of my CD purchases were from the now-defunct BMG Record Club.

It sure would be nice if physical book purchases were accompanied by ebook copies, sometimes it is nice to have the paper version and if you need to carry it and others nice to have the electronic versions.
