I’m very new to this forum and I apologize if I’m asking some stupid questions. Also, please go easy on me if I use the wrong words or terms for various processes.
I’ve been making backups of DVD’s for quite some time, and recently decided it was time to move up to Blu-ray’s. I bought a Sony BDV-N790W which is a Blu-ray player with surround sound. The system seems to be working just fine for playing both DVD and Blu-ray discs.
The first Blu-ray disc I bought and then made a backup of was Skyfall. I followed guides that I found on this forum and used AnyDVD to rip/decrypt the disc onto my hard drive. I used BD Rebuilder to do a movie only back up. And I then used ImgBurn to burn a 25 GB disc. As far as I could tell, everything worked fine and the backup disc played just fine. Since then I have also made backups of Lincoln, and two other James Bond Blu-ray’s. Each of the disc’s I have made backups of have played fine from begining to end.
My concern is that since buying the Blu-ray sound system, several Blu-ray discs, and a stack of 25 GB BD-R’s (quite a monetary investment) I’ve been reading about Cinavia. From what I’ve been reading (in this forum and other places on the net) it seems like something’s not right. I really wish I had never heard about Cinavia (ignorance is indeed bliss!) but now I’m worried that somehow it will kick in and all my backups will be useless. Of course I can always watch the original discs but I prefer to make backup of all my discs and then file the originals away in case something happens to the backup. Anyway, can anybody tell me why the Cinavia doesn’t seem to be working.
The Blu-ray player says it was made in Oct, 2012, and I have not updated the firmware (and I have no intention of doing so). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
