    The sheeps refer to the EFM capability of a drive.
    ( the name Sheep more less comes from the original days of CloneCD)
    Correct EFM-Encoding

    2 sheep = Drive writes regular bit patterns correctly.
    1 sheep = Drive writes regular bit patterns almost correctly.

    It is best to have a 2 sheep burner, it can read and write in RAW mode bit for bit, WHICH, is extremely usefull when trying to make back-ups of copyprotected CD, DVD media.

    U welcome,

    Does this mean that if i have a sheep 2 i can make a 1:1 copy of say halo without emulation?

    also what does regular bit patterns mean or do.
    thank you

    It means you can make pretty much a perfect 1:1 image.

    If you've noticed on a cdr there's a ring in the middle?

    That's an ATIP file, most protections will check for this file. That's how it knows your 1:1 perfect copy isn't the damn original.

    You require emulation so this ATIP file isn't read.

    It is known that some DVD-rom drives will not read this ATIP file.

    As for bit patterns, google yourself on the mechanics of optical drives, it doesn't really matter, what matters is, is this:

    You'll have a much better chance burning with a two sheep than with a 1 sheep.

    Halo last time I checked was protected by safedisc 3xx,
    and yes I think you will need emulation.

    Check out Daemon Tools.
