> What do you mean by "old safedisc datatype settings"? How do I do this?
Exactly what I said. When using alcohol just select Safedisc as the datatype for reading and writing the image.
Note also that read errors are normal for SmarteE (and safedisc) protected cds. It's the major part of the protection. As with safedisc protected cds just be patient and let the reading process complete.
