Introducing Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon Cloud Player for Web, and Amazon Cloud Player for Android
Buy anywhere, play anywhere and keep all your music in one place
Start with 5 GB of free Cloud Drive storage - upgrade to 20 GB free with purchase of any MP3 album

Is mainly for MP3 so you can buy them online and access then from anywhere but you can store anything on there, photos, documents etc.

The music player works with Android apparently as well as PC but not tried it yet.

Purely as online storage, this is potentially way better than drop box IMHO just for the 5GB rather than 2GB.

20gb free is available to "Only residents of the United States with a United States billing address are eligible for this offer."

Are you sure this applies in the UK? I was looking at their terms and conditions for the free 20GB (for a year, then you have to pay) and it says "Only residents of the United States with a United States billing address are eligible for this offer."!!

I think UK residents can use the 5GB option, it let me log in (to the Amazon.com site - with paid upgrades), but according to the site:

The 5 GB free storage plan is available to all Amazon.com customers, however further upgrades to the storage plan are currently unavailable in the following countries:

United Kingdom

Only open to US based customers (the 20Gb offer).

Dropbox even with 'only' 2Gb is still a very good service when you consider the number of different ways you can access and share data from it. Although Dropbox isn't really aimed at audio/video usage, which Amazon CloudDrive seems to be targetting.

I've been using Skydrive with 25GB storage for free for ages. I even use it from a Mac or using Sorami app from an Android phone. Meets all my cloud storage needs.

This Amazon thing works by giving 5GB for free, then an upgrade to 20GB if you buy one music album per year. I'm sure it will be available in the UK eventually.

When i hit 'launch player', i get a screen which says:
"It appears that you are attempting to use Amazon Cloud Player from outside the U.S. This service is intended for U.S. customers only."

Are others getting this too?

I would advise anyone who signs up for this upload just one file (even if it's a tiny text file) so that the account isn't removed if they ever pull the plug on further sign-ups. Basically, if something's on there, they can't ever remove your account. :)

Seems to have allowed me in
Theres a few storage sites like this elsewhere on the net.
#22
ta, just tried it out and uploaded a single mp3

Microsoft's Live Sync is 5 GB free too.

But all of these services are completely impractical for modern day storage volumes. One legit TV episode download is around 0.5 GB in size. To store just Season 1 of Lost would be 12.5 GB, to store all the seasons would be 60.5 GB. That would cost you roughly £60/year on Amazon.

Sorry - my mistake!
Was trying to use the Cloud Player directly...

Thanks a lot!

I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon eventually sell TV episodes, so you own them and they appear on your storage, but in actual fact are hosted on a main server which you can stream from any time you like.

It will have its uses, I can assure you! Cloud is the future. In future, mobile devices and PC's won't need much storage as long as they have a decent internet connection. You could find mobile phones with 512MB internal data more than enough for people who use Cloud services like this with 5GB data.

The content that you buy from Amazon (currently only MP3's and US only at this stage) is not counting towards your allowance. So if they sell movies (which they will, in US part of the Prime package) they won't eat out of your free data storage allowance.

I use drop box as it has a mobile app. For some of my lessons I take a pic on my phone and upload it to the college virtual learning site.

Do not think any of the others mentioned allows you to do this?
#35
Uploaded a MP3 to my clouddrive but I can't access it using the Amazon MP3 app even after I sign in
#36
Does anyone know how secure this "cloud" storage is.
e.g.
Is it encrypted
Are the servers based in Libya or Nigeria
#37
Don't know if it has been mentioned, but the 20GB offer is only for one year. After that you would have to pay or else drop back down to the 5gb plan.
#38
use two?

Do you have to upload files themselves - I mean is it possible to upload folders of files? Opening all my folders, selecting all, uploading them is going to take a lot longer than just highlighting a folder and sending the lot.
