Why is it that, AFAIK, SACD copy protection has never been broken, but sony's blu-ray was cracked so quickly? Why didn;t they use SACD protection, or am i misinformed?

I don't recall ever seeing any computer compatible SACD drives or software players. Plus I don't think anyone cared about SACD except audiophiles.

Many more people were interested in Blu Ray compared to the few who even knew SACD existed. It is a value proposition, plus the fact that there was/is no consumer SACD PC hardware was a big detriment to the even fewer who knew about the format AND were willing to spend resources cracking it.

DVD-A is broken so the reason is lack of PC hardware. Closest we got is PS3 Linux.

The hypervisor it runs under will probably prevent that sort of hacking attempt. (I'm not saying there's not a way around that, but it'll certainly make things more difficult.)

Not a lot of point if cracking an SACD just to rip it to mp3 to upload to the nearest torrent site. And BD+ ain't broke from the studios perspective.

Before a copy pretection system can be broken, it must be playable on that particular system.

SACD was never licensed to be played on PCs. Without this, discussion about hacking it become irrelevant.

If its purpose is to annoy consumers and push them to Slysoft, then it ain't broke.

Like I said from the studios perspective it ain't broke. From my perspective it couldn't be more broke.

Who uses it apart from Fox and Paramount?


From my perspective it's broke, because it renders Blu-ray unplayable on my equipment. What's the purpose of buying or renting Blu-ray if it won't play?
