reason

Thanks for the replies-
They have resent the file and this time it contains all the programme. i.e. you can open it to find reason, application folder, demo song, etc..

However, when I open it in toast titanium the disc image still won't mount. It seems to me I've been duped as I can't even see reason five as a download on this site!

Yes, that's money down the drain.

No need to start a new thread.

Read the answers there and contact Propellerhead about these thieves.

Reason 5 never had a download version.

What they did was make a copy of the DVD, and use a key generator to create a fake serial number that "works".

Fwiw, this is the same thing that the pirates are downloading for free from torrent sites.

Not that I'm telling you to do that, because I'm not. I'm trying to demonstrate that you're dealing with dishonest people that are lying to you and stealing your money.

Now, if they're willing to do that from the start, what kind of surprises do you thin await you on that DVD image you got.

Let me give you a hint... Reason 5 doesn't need a 7GB DVD image, only about half of that at most.

No doubt the site is dishonest, but out of curiosity I've just checked my Reason 5 DVD and it is 6.22 GB big, so size is about right.

thanks for the reply. I've asked them to cancel my order which they have replied to and told me it's cancelled. The disc image file came out to 8.36GB in the end.

I live in Turkey and it seems nowhere sells reason here. After looking I'm not sure that reason 5 is available at all now. I'd pay to have it shipped from abroad if I can get it. If you know anything I'd be well grateful...

I'm really glad you got your money back! Every now and then there is someone selling a used licence, sometimes even a brand new R6.5. Just keep your eyes open.

You must have an earlier licence if you buy the upgrade, but if you buy a full licence, that's ok. The price here on this site is the following:

R6.5 => €405 (your case)
R6.5 upgrade => €149 (for owners of previous versions)

In the end, if you buy a used 6.5 licence for something between €200 - €250, it will likely still be cheaper than buying Reason 5 and the upgrade.
