    Default Amazon search

    Hi,

    I appear to have a problem when switching between international Amazon sites. I use amazon.co.uk as my default Amazon search and that works fine, as does amazon.com, amazon.ca and amazon.co.jp.

    However, when I try to use either amazon.de or amazon.fr I ALWAYS get the "No match found on server" error message.

    I've searched through the forums and found mention of firewall settings in this post: [url]http://www.firetongue.com/boards/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=orangecd_general;action=display;num= 1136752189;start=2#2[/url]

    I don't think that the firewall is the problem, however, I have made sure that dadbapp.exe (OrangeCD Catalog) has access to the internet through port 80. But still no joy with the same two Amazon sites.

    Do you have any ideas of what could be causing this, and aof course a possible solution.

    Many thanks

    David

    Unfortunately there are lots of problems with Amazon France and Germany webservices. The inventory search produces weird results since last year, and if things will not be fixed soon, these two servers will be removed from OrangeCD.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, but these problems are pretty much beyond our control.

    Hi Andrei,

    Thanks for that, at least I now know that it's not just my system!

    Is there also now something going on with the US and UK Amazon sites? This is something that I've only been noticing for the last few days. When I make a query in either the US or UK site I get the following error message:

    "Bad HTTP status code" under the errors tab. And, under the "Session Log" tab, right at the end I get this:

    "<&#124; You are receiving this error because you sent more than one request per second to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Per the AWS Licensing Agreement, AWS restricts each IP address to no more than one request per second. Please see the full
    <&#124; <a href="[url]http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?node=3440661[/url] ">AWS Licensing Agreement</a>."

    I assume that Amazon has changed recently.

    BTW: same applies to cover download feature which sometimes produces bad status while getting covers for multiple albums. It will also be fixed.

    Hi Andrei,

    Just wondering when this update will be posted as "a few days" has now turned into a couple of weeks!

    Cheers,

    It seems like an urgent update is needed for OrangeCD!
