S202N and DW1640 vs CDS 200

Bought me a copy protected album: Within Temptation - Mother Earth, which according to ClonyXXL has CDS 200.5.11.90. I have two drives - Samsung SH-S202N (SB02) and BenQ DW1640 (BSLB; crossflashed Sony DRU-810A). Ripper is EAC 0.99 prebeta4. Neither of these drives would rip this CD in Secure Mode. Both of them however seem to rip it fine in Burst Mode. I don’t get matching CRC but the ripped tracks play fine - no clicks, pops or distortion of any kind. Does this mean that my drives can indeed handle/defeat this copy protection or must a drive be able to rip in Secure Mode before we can say it’s able to defeat the protection?
