This might be a weird topic, but I've been trying for the last hour to get some albums on Amazon since I have $30 in Gift Cards. However, everytime I try to purchase I get the following message:

This strike me as strange since I've bought in Amazon MP3 before (Wario64 has posted quite a few MP3 credits deals here). I used Hotspot Shield and OpenVPN before, but that ain't working anymore. And yes, I do have an US Address on my account.

I used to do the same. Had a US address but moved, it worked for a while, but I think a little while ago they changed how they recognised your address/location. IP? At any rate, I can't buy MP3s anymore.

Watch out, they might actually deactivate your DRMed books if you move!

I live in the US, and I use this for the BBC and such.
Get "FoxyProxy" for Firefox or Chrome, and plug in a free IP port proxy set in the US.
Try http://hidemyass.com/proxy-list/ as a place to start.

Try with many proxies and it didn't work. Dunno what they use know to check location, but it is annoying. =(

Thanks anyway.

Why not ask a US gaffer here to redeem your gift cards, download the songs you want and have him send them to you? You paid for them
