    Amazon Cloud Drive

    I've just set up my free 5gb cloud drive on Amazon. So far I'm very impressed (though I had to log in to Amazon via their US website). 5 gigabytes of free, easily accessible cloud storage with a very easy to use intuitive interface. I've been using Zumodrive up to now for cloud storage - 2 gb free - but Amazon seems way better.

    Can't really compare as i've only ever used dropbox - but im happy with that keep all my important stuff in the cloud in case of a crash. Might give amazon a try see how that fares. dropbox is also free but only 2gb storage.

    Re: Amazon Cloud Drive

    I logged into my account from the UK, and set up my Cloud Drive. I can upload files to it, but I get the following message when trying to play music files or launch the Cloud Player from my Cloud Drive:
    For U.S. Customers Only

    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.

    How are you getting around this? I assume Amazon are using geolocation restrictions by IP address - are you using a US proxy?
