Programs for defating safedisc

vbimport

#1

I was wondering which one of these three programs are good for defeating safedisc up to 3.15 (or higher)?

Blindwrite
discdump
discjuggler


#2

Blindwrite - not so good for safedisc 3+ at the moment

Discdump - reads the image ok, but its the writing of the disc that is tricky and discdump doesn’t write the image

Discjuggler - probably the best of the 3 mentioned, if you have an accurate reader

Could also try cloneCD / Alcohol, it has been known to work for some where other programs fail. But out of those 3 programs listed, i’d go for Discjuggler. Remember safedisc 3 is very hardware dependant…no method may work for your particular hardware!


#3

DiscDump + FireBurner was also the best for SafeDisc 2.9+. Havn’t tried it for SafeDisc 3 yet.


#4

Blindwrite - not so good for safedisc 3+ at the moment

Why is this?


#5

Whilst Blindwrite works for some, it’s not always reliable when writing the newest (very) weak sectors in the later versions of safedisc 3.xx

Discdump / Fireburner is also a good combination, but fireburner cannot handle safedisc 3.15 and above in many cases…a good method for upto sd 3.10 however.


#6

DiscJuggler


#7

If you have an accurate reader (Toshiba dvd, Plextor cdrw or Asus cdrw) AND a writer capable of writing all the weak sector patterns accurately (40x or faster Asus cdrw, 52x A-Open cdrw, 52x Lite-on cdrw or recent Lite-on dvdrw, ancient 8x scsi plex cdr and a few others) discjuggler is best.

If you have a slightly less accurate reader (but more tolerant of back-up copies) (e.g. Lite-on dvd, cdrw or dvdrw), alcohol is probably your best bet. [You may get lucky with dj but don’t count on it.]

I Guess i’ll use Alcy with my 832s


#9

alc 120% is the best at the moment, havnt had any luck with blindwrite/clonecd. but im just waiting for the guys at clonecd/alc120/blindwrite to make a proper backup method that definatly works. the current methods are tempromental and unrelyable. :frowning:
