Add from Amazon MP3 Folder v1.1 will display the Album folders in your designated “Amazon MP3″ downloads folder so you can select which of them to add to iTunes. Optionally, if you allow iTunes to “Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library”, you can choose to move the original folder and files out of the “Amazon MP3″ download folder and to the Trash. Saves a few keystrokes. This newest version runs as an application since the compiled version would often generate an error at startup.
Although the Amazon MP3 Downloader application has a preference to add downloaded purchases to iTunes, I could never get it to work.
Search Amazon UK MP3 uses terms from the selected iTunes track as the basis for a search of the Amazon UK’s MP3 site.
Is it just that the Amazon MP3 Downloader application won’t automatically add downloads to my iTunes or is this a Windows-only feature? Didn’t bother to find out for myself because I decided to have a script do it instead. Add from Amazon MP3 Folder will let you choose the Album folders from your “Amazon MP3″ downloads folder and add their files to iTunes. Optionally, if you allow iTunes to “Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library”, you can choose to move the original folder(s) and files out of the “Amazon MP3″ download folder and to the Trash after they’re added to iTunes. Saves a few keystrokes.
It occurred to me to make this a Folder Action–so that files get added as soon as they hit the “Amazon MP3″ downloads folder–but Folder Actions can be dicey when working with internet-downloading files. So, you’ve got to run this from the iTunes Script menu.
I’ve also included the script “Open Amazon MP3 Folder” that will open your Amazon MP3 downloads folder and make it the frontmost window in the Finder. This script can be run from iTunes’ Script menu as well.
