Backing up SD3 and protected CDs

Can someone tell me what is the recommended setting to back up SD2 and other protected CDs?
for these CDs, i am using CloneCD. when i try to back up protected CDs, the burning program stalls at 0% and just sits there while the CDRW is accessing the CD indefinitely. I check the logs and all im getting are repeated “failed to read sectors so and so” errors.
thanks in advance.

ooops nevermind… found futureproof’s very detailed article under CloneCD for this. thanks.
