Hello,

I can't get cover art via the amazon.com album information search. I looked for information in the search function and can find some topics from 2017 saying it has something to do with the change of Amazon's API for searching and grabbing Cover artwork. Is there already a way to fix this problem?

Or is mentioned below still apllicable?

2. As Spacial doesn't do any updates to older releases anymore (after all the subscription model grants access to the latest version at any time), any version before 2017.1 is unlikely to have this feature ever work again.

The situation still exists and the policy hasn't changed.

Unless you are adding massive amounts of albums at a time, everything the internal SAM search does can be done externally (manually) and the database image can be updated via direct mysql query in a relatively short amount of time invested.

Upgrade your SAM to at least version 2017.1

Otherwise I'd suggest using an external tagging tool with features for downloading cover art semi-automatically.
I'm a big fan of TheGodFather, but there are other tools more targeted at the casual user that can do the same.
