No this is not possible if the original copier made the image with the SafeDisc protection intact. The image created with the protection intact cannot be modified or else this protection would be lost and the back-up would be useles.
It could however very well be that the copy has another protection because the original also had this extra protection like an additional SubChannel protection.
Ps. Have tried CloneCD? With Fast Error Skip enabled (for the SafeDisc protection) the image should be created within a few minutes and ready to burn...
