Anybody Else Getting a 404 Error When Trying to Purchase/Download?

Since yesterday, every time I click on the "download now" button, whether from a link on the free NOOKbooks thread or directly from the product page, I get a 404 "page not found" error.  I can't believe B&N would allow its site to be down this long, but I certainly can't purchase any NOOKbooks.  Is anyone else having this problem?

It's the same for me, whether a free book or a paid one. Having tried various browsers, Safari, Chrome and IE, I finally managed to purchase the book through Nook Glow directly. That, more than likely, was just dumb luck.

I had the same problem yesterday. However, after waiting a couple of minutes and reloading the page, I was able to purchase the book. I used Firefox on WinXP.

I've been having trouble downloading some books from my libary to my Mac when using the blue "Download" button (oddly, books that have the text "Download" link seem to download fine). This has been going on about 2 weeks. In Safari, a plain blank window pops up and says simply "Oops" -- no error code or explanation. I was able to download some of them in Firefox.

 

The continuing problems with BN's website are a frustration.

Yup seeing this errors and it's costing a ton of money in lost sales.

Just coming off a promotion and put the price back up and now the book can't be purchased.

Pretty annoying!

Edit - just noticed that this forum post is from 2010!!! Strange as I filtered Google to just the last 7 days and this post came up

Actually, this topic was started last week.
