How can I download all songs from my Amazon Cloud Drive?

The web interface doesn't provide a Select All feature, and there isn't an Amazon Cloud API like the S3 API. There is the Amazon MP3 Downloader, but that only downloads songs that you select from the web interface.

I've been thinking about using a mouse-clicking script (Automator or Python on OSX), but just wanted to check if anyone else determined a solution before I get to work.

Unfortunately, it looks like you're stuck with the Amazon MP3 Downloader. Currently it only supports the downloading of 500 songs at a time and there is no direct Amazon API, so your best bet is probably to create a script. Hope your script works out!

The easiest method was to use Gladinet to mount my Amazon Cloud Drive in Windows, which allowed me to Ctrl-A and drag-and-drop from File Explorer. The starter edition (free) of Gladinet limits you to "1000 items per task" (I think that means copying 1000 items at a time).

While this is a bit of a dated question, Amazon now has a Cloud Drive App that allows you to select your entire music folder from the Cloud Drive (NOT the Cloud Player) view. You access it similarly to the Cloud PLayer - from the drop down menu at the upper right of the amazon.com page. I haven't seen this functionality advertised anywhere, but it works pretty well. Be patient while it sets things up!

You can't download more than one item at a time however. –  John Salvatier Feb 3 '13 at 21:54

No - you can select the "Archived Music" folder from the amazon cloud drive web site (which you can get to from the cloud drive app). Then, you click the download button. Did you try this? I've actually use this once already. –  Dav Clark Feb 5 '13 at 22:08
    
For me it says "Cloud Drive does not support downloading more than one file at a time. Please select a single file to download. Downloading Music? Launch Cloud Player" However in cloud drive it says you can't download more than one song if you're on linux. I guess I can switch to a windows/osx machine to do that. –  John Salvatier Feb 5 '13 at 23:49
    
Just to confirm, I've only had this work on OS X. Seems odd they wouldn't support linux the same way... it's an adobe air application after all. –  Dav Clark Feb 6 '13 at 20:07

I used the JSShell extension to run some checkbox-clicking javascript>

$("[type='checkbox'][itemtype='song']")
  .each(function(idx, elem)
  {
    if (!elem.checked)
      elem.click();
  });

I needed to scroll down manually, and run it a few times, in order to get all the checkboxes checked.

You can install Amazon Cloud Player for PC and download your songs from it.

This worked for me. Once you've downloaded your music, it can be found in (on Win7): C:\Users\<yourusername>\My Music\Amazon MP3. –  Andrew Ferrier Sep 7 '13 at 10:59
    
Interesting. This wasn't possible in 2011. –  superuser Feb 19 at 17:26
    
This works on Mac OS, too. Your music is in ~/Music/Amazon MP3. iTunes should then automatically index it. –  bugloaf Feb 28 at 20:05

Actually I was able to select everything in the Cloud MP3 app by just using Ctrl-A Then dragging everything over to the "download" space.

Of course this just dumps it in the default windows "Music" folder, but I can move it from there.
