Amazon - cite info failure cases

Zotero fails to capture book information from the following books with the indicated version numbers of Zotero and Firefox. This was done on 05 Dec 2006. My Zotero install has previously worked to automatically snarf book info from Amazon (e.g. recognizing the type as "Book," getting the ISBN, author, publisher, etc.) -- maybe Amazon has changed the data formats?

Zotero 1.0.0b2.r2

    A new Amazon translator should be out with Beta 3 within a week that should fix the problem and generally work much better. (It uses the API rather than much more fragile page scraping.)
