Possibly a rhetorical question

I am wondering... should I shell out €59.49 for a dvd2oneX licence so that I can fit the contents of a double layer DVD onto a single-layer DVD-R, or should I instead spend €57.45 on a Pioneer DVR-109 double layer DVD writer?

Is it just me or are shareware licence fees becoming somewhat unreasonable lately? And why is the Mac licence €10 more expensive than the Windows version?

It says something about a person when they spell "license" as "licence." I guess it says they're European.

laura, I guess you are very right. We learnt it in school that way. And I went to a completely different school than Horst, however in the same country.

So everybody agrees that buying the DVD writer is the better option?

DVDshrink seems to be Windows-only... :(
