Yes. Not all Lite-ons produce coasters with bypass efm errors (alcohol) or AWS (clonecd) or their equivalents in other programs checked.
For example, with my 2 sheep 24102b, it makes no difference whether or not these options are checked. However, with any of FutureProof’s 3 Liteys, he’ll get a coaster every time if they are and his experience is more common than yours or mine.
The point is that even if bypass efm errors/AWS has no effect, it isn’t necessary with a 2 sheep writer and so should not be checked. It will not assist a 2 sheep writer to make a working back-up and may well prevent it from doing so.
So far as cd-mate is concerned, it too is hit or miss with sd 2.8 but, to be fair, most (though not all) cd-mate users have succeeded. Of the programs in the maybe category, based on the various reports in this and other forums, it is probably the most likely to succeeed.
However, its success rate doesn’t approach any of discdump/fireburner, discjuggler and alcohol when correctly used with a suitable writer (there are virtually no reports of failures with the first 2 options save where a user has been unable to get discdump to run at all on their system).
