It seems that the Amazon capsule doesn't like ISBN 13 and instead translates it to ISBN 10. That's okay, but only if it translate it correctly. I've only used ISBN 13 twice, but each time HubPages' Amazon capsule couldn't find the book! Why? Because it had mis-translated the ISBN -- off by one digit!
A book by a friend of mine,
Quest for Atlantis II, R. Cedric Leonard
The capsule translates the 13-digit ISBN (978-1411636316) it seems by stripping off the "978-," but as you can see, this is wrong! ISBN 10 is 1411636317 for this book.
I don't know if ISBN 10 is consistently ISBN 13 +1, but this should be looked into or a warning should be made to use only ISBN 10.
I've tried to use the ISBN numbers several times and it never worked. Like Izzy I only use the url.

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...
