For Olli eyes only

Yamaha CRW-F1E can copy all version of safedisc so it has 2 sheeps in the correct EFM encoding and not 1 (tested with GTA 3 and Mafia without AWS !!!).
Please update the supported writers link !!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Since when?
I think you forgot to test your backup in a Toshiba 1502!

I have the Yamaha here and I can confirm it cannot copy SafeDisc v2.51.021 without AWS. If I do it without AWS the back-up will not play from my Toshiba SD-M1502 DVD-ROM. With AWS enabled the back-up does play. Tested with both GTA3 and Serious Sam 2. The Yamaha is a great drive though.
