When I run the .deb file I downloaded from here, I get this error:
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libboost-filesystem1.34.1
Does anyone know a work around for this?

The Amazon MP3 Downloader package is meant for use with 9.04 and depends on some packages that are now out of date. Fortunately, you can download the now-outdated libboost-filesystem1.34.1 from packages.ubuntu.com and install it by hand.
If the Amazon .deb gives you further dependency errors, I can help you find those packages as well.
You'll notice that the version of that package in the lucid repos is:
You can tell by checking for the package on the system. From a terminal run the command:
apt-cache search libboost
The version is upgraded from the one that the Amazon downloader is looking for. According to the Amazon site, the downloader is compatitlbe with Ubuntu verion 9.04 which is a year old. Are you running a more recent version?
There is a note in this post here: http://blog.binarykatana.com/post/amazon-mp3-downloader-on-lucid/
Note that if you use this you're performing some potentially bad/unsupported actions. Unfortunately the best solution would be for Amazon to better support their download client.
If you follow the link given by the OP, it appears that Amazon has now made official their lack of Linux support for the MP3 Downloader. Their new Cloud Player does have a 'Download' option, though it's not as full-featured as I'd like. You can only download one song at a time, even if you buy the whole album, and it does not give you the nice
[artist]/[album]/... directory structure that the Downloader did. Still, it's an option.
