I've done everything in the Amazon FAQ and Troubleshooting (pretty sure I have anyway). But none of their stuff mentions this particular anomaly. As stated, downloads fine...Early 2009 Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.5), G4 Sawtooth; 10.4.11; several upgrades
The .amz file isn't the music, it's just a reference to it. It's supposed to open the Amazon Downloader, which actually downloads the music file(s). Have you installed it? If so, you could try reinstalling it.

Yes, I downloaded the Downloader and reinstalled it. Actually, I don't believe one can download an Amazon MP3 without the Downloader; I believe an "error window" pops up.
As stated, the file downloads fine; opens iTunes when opened...then nada; nowhere to be found (except on the desktop).Early 2009 Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.5), G4 Sawtooth; 10.4.11; several upgrades

Yes you can. (I do it all the time.)
The Amazon MP3 store, and almost all the online music download stores that I have used other than iTunes, allow you do download tracks from your browser, without the need for additional software. Some people find the Amazon downloader to be a convenience, but it is not required.Windows 7, and 16GB Nano
I am also having the same issue. The files download fine, and I can double click on the files and they will start playing in iTunes, and they even show up in the recently added playlist... but I can't see them in my library. Any ideas?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
ed....good to know
dahlberg...at least you can play your downloads. With mine nothing happens after iTunes opens; not listed, much less start playing; nowhere to be found.Early 2009 Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.5), G4 Sawtooth; 10.4.11; several upgrades
The files should be in '(user)/Music/Amazon Downloads' (the default, unless you have changed it): they should also be copied into the iTunes library, though there is a setting to enable or disable this in the Amazon Downloader preferences.
If the files are not appearing there (and you can't locate them by searching) you should contact Amazon Support.24 inch iMac (10.6.4), 13 inch Macbook Pro (10.6.4), 20 inch G4 iMac (10.4.11), Asus 'eee' (Linux), G3 Beige desktop Mac (8.6)
