    Yes I get the same error too. I suspect that Amazon has changed its interface (URL or search results HTML) so the parsing of the downloader program won't work anymore. You may want to try disabling the "Amazon" search and use the others instead.

    actually..it just kind of works. it doesnt show much results like it used to. also..funny thing is..if i use this program..it searches wal-mart and sometimes it doesnt show any results. but yet, if i were to go to their site and manual search, i get results..odd

    also..it seems that the search takes longer =( i wonder if theres a way to really fix fix it

    okay...i just got an email from the guy. so yea..just disable the amazon one and it should work fine. just slower and maybe less results

    Unfortunately starting this April, Amazon has deprecated their old
    web service which was used to download the images. At this time, the
    only work-around for this error is to therefore disable the Amazon
    image source from the program settings.

    Please see http://unrealvoodoo.org/hiteck/projects/albumart/ for
    further information.
