thank you for the responses.
here’s my next question then:
i made a copy of a safedisc (v1) protected game. i scanned the copy with clonyxxl and it also told me safedisc was being used. i mounted the image with fantom cd and scanned the virtual cd. safedisc again.
i’ve made copies of two games that, when scanned, clonyxxl reads: BAD SECTORS. i’m not sure what this means exactly. i hear they are usually used as a low-level cd-check, but that confuses me since clony has its own profile for “CD-CHECK” itself. in any event, when i scan the copies i’ve made of these two, clony doesn’t find any bad sectors. instead: “NO/UNKNOWN COPY PROTECTION FOUND”.
when mounting the images, again, no bad sectors.
my question, and pardon me since i’m a newbie: why does a copy protection like safedisc stay on the copy, but the other two have bad sectors which are NOT apparently copied over?
does it have to do with the “fast error skip” option? this was my original question, since one protection seemed to stay and another seemed to be “corrected” and therefore gone.
