Is there a way for me to get the MP3s I bought from Amazon.com before they introduced the cloud player (where you downloaded them once and that was it) to be available via cloud player now?
I have purchased MP3s from Amazon.com for several years. Back in 2011, Amazon launched their cloud storage and associated Cloud Player, which allows you to keep and play/download the digital media you have bought from them repeatedly.
Before that time, you could only download the MP3s you bought once. I had done that for quite a few albums. Unfortunately, the hard drive I kept them on took a turn for the worse and eventually failed (yes, I learned that lesson the hard way). I was able to get the lion's share of the music off before the drive finally gave up the ghost, but there are still a dozen or so albums I would like to have "back."
Just this weekend, Amazon retroactively added MP3s to the Cloud Player for (eligible) physical CDs I bought, all the way back to 1998, as part of their new "Autorip" scheme
. "Great," I thought, "now I have those albums back!" Well, not the old digital
albums I bought pre-2011.
Does anyone know if there is a way to get those old digital albums available in the Cloud Storage? Has anyone had luck talking to Amazon customer service about this? Thanks.
