Burning a Safdisc 4 Protected CD

I am attempting to burn a Safedisc 4 encrypted CD. It is a legit version of Rosetta Stone. I have paid for it and would like to run it from the copies and not the original. I understand that they will replace disc’s for 6 months. This is not my concern, what do I do after then, therefore I would like my own copy(s).

Enclosed is the results from A-Ray

[05:31:04 AM] Signs on CD/DVD indicate SafeDisc 4.00
[05:31:05 AM] — File(s) Scan Finished [0.75s] —

My drive is a Philips CDRW/DVD SCB5265 TD15

I have attempted using Alcohol 120 v1.9.7 build 6221 with the following settings:
Emulation - Ignore Media Type
Extra Emulation - Bad Sectors Emulation checked
Reading - unselected all DPM settings
Data Type - Disktype Safedisc 2/3/4
Max reading speed 4x
Skip reading errors is checked
Fast skip error blocks is checked

Same error received every time at .5% Read error and starts at block 1655 and continues and will not progress beyond this. The drive almost sounds like you have a bad disk in it like the old floppy drives use to sound.

Hardware is OK tested with other disc’s and it works fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Read errors are normal for safedisc protected cds. You need to be patient and let the reading process continue.

It may be very slow for the first ~10,500 sectors (usually the first 3 - 5% of the disc) but will read normally once it has finished reading the bad sector area.

try protectionid it will scan most dated copy protection
