feedburner/google atom and magpie problem

I have an account on google reader where I have the shared items page (which I assume is an atom).. I need to show these shared items in my own website so I installed magpie (on my localhost and on my webserver).
The problem with google is when it shows the atom links in a wrong way, by that I mean something like this:
[whole link to the news item]+[link to the server]

In order to solve the problem with the links I use feedburner that has an option to convert atom into rss 2.0, and with this I managed to solve the link problem, but now appeared another problem..

the items are showing only for onece or twice then I get an error from my magpie code:

Warning: MagpieRSS: Failed to fetch feedburner_link (HTTP Response: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found ) in C:\Program Files\VertrigoServ\www\prolex_db\rss\my-magpie\rss_fetch.inc on line 238

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\Program Files\VertrigoServ\www\prolex_db\rss\rss.php on line 47

the feedburner link doesn't work although google shared items works fine (not assuming the link problem)
I need to show my items correctly using feedburner or google's atom, doesn't matter how..

If someone had this problem please give me some tips to resolve it :)

I've found the response to my problem!

just put this code in you php (in my case it's rss.php):

define('MAGPIE_USER_AGENT', 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1;
en-US; rv: Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1');
