Civ III update to SD2.6

I cloned the Civ III cd which contains SD2.4 and was able play the game, then i patched the game which brings with it SD 2.6 and civ iii will still run with my burned copy. So does that mean in theory that my burner is capable of copying SD2.6 protected CD’s from the get go? I only ask because it is a generic cheap burner that i didn’t buy to do specifily clone cd burning. A CenDyne Lightning II, which used to be a lite-on OEM drive, but now they are CenDyne labeled as CW3201 which is what mine is.

Thanks for your ideas on this.
