    First of all, use the slowest burning speed you can select like (4X)
    And I think the cloneCD needs uninstalled when using alcohol.

    Massive errors are indeed normal for SafeDisc. If your drive supports fast error skip you can enable that or just wait it out.

    I had the best success using BlindWrite 4.57 with the following settings:

    Read settings:
    - Authorize the use of alternative method
    - Choose nibble and read at 8x

    Write settings:

    - No Enhance Weak Sectors
    - No autoplay enabled
    - Burn DAO Pw at

    We also have a big thread covering Sims 2 :)

    You need to burn the image using BlindWrite - Nero can't write the protection back to disc.
