I'm trying to set up a system where I first import all amazon videogame data and then somehow use their rss feeds to update things on a daily basis so that the data stays current.

I've been able to start importing the data, but for some reason when I get to page 251 it says "<ErrorMsg>We encountered an error processing your request. Please retry.</ErrorMsg>" in the returned xml.

Here's the url I'm using. Change "page=251" to "page=250" to see that it actually does work for 250 but not 251.

http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml3?BrowseNodeSearch=468642&mode=videogames&type=heavy&f=xml&dev-t=13NNTAAKSD1SEFM11PG2&t=13NNTAAKSD1SEFM11PG2&page=251

If you change it to "page=1" you'll see that that xml indicates "<TotalPages>1934</TotalPages>", so the results shouldn't stop until page 1934.

I had similar sort of problem when I was going through 32000 records, it allowed me up to 10000 but not there after...
So these are may the limitation/little bugs the code has on their side. If we notify them we will have the problem sorted out.
