10 minutes for the first 3% is normal for cds with safedisc protection. The protection uses unreadable sectors in the first ~10,500 sectors (generally a little over 3%). Just let the reading process continue and it will return to normal speed as soon as it's finished reading that part of the cd.
Btw, please don't post the same question on more than one forum. It's called cross-posting and is against the Rules.
[I've deleted the cross-post on the clonecd forum accordingly.]
