This title is unavailable for download and transfer

It appears that Amazon has recently removed the option to download and transfer all book samples. For those of us who keep wifi off, preventing unwanted firmware updates, this certainly will not encourage me to make a purchase. Way to go, Amazon.

Interesting. One new release and three previously downloaded samples all have this listed under their titles. Also, the format of the "more actions" dropdown menu has changed. (Also US)

Hmm. I've been cancelled! All samples in my "content and devices" are labeled the same with the different dropdown (samples attached).

Yes, the sample and the book are both available for download.

I hope it's just a glitch and not something we're all going to see in the near future. The day I can't deDRM my Amazon purchases is the day I no longer buy ebooks from Amazon.

Hmm I just noticed that the samples in My Content and Devices are not available for download either. But they are available when I go to the product page.

Precisely. Changes have been made and they're not good. Odd, that you could download the link I provided but I cannot.

If this is a sign of things to come I won't be buying any more books from Amazon.

Thank you for verifying.

O.K, this is driving me nuts.

Samples? Purchases are still available for me too, but not the samples, unless I go to the product page.
