    Your burner [bold] does support efm encoding [/bold] but only writes regular bit patterns [bold] almost correctly [/bold]. To play backups of Safedisc 2.x you'll need the aid of a ATIP tool (hide cd-r, ignore media type) and in the writing process you'll need to enable "amplify weak sectors" or "bypass efm errors". Consider a Lite-ON or Asus (2 sheep burner) for backing up Safedisc 2.8.x& SecuROM 4.8.x m8.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So what your saying is that I cant truly backup SafeDisc 2.8 type CDs... only copy them and then use something like a Protection Emulator or even an Executable Unwrapper? Are the latter known to work at all?

    In short, backups of Safedisc 2.8.x^= you'll some type of emulation (ATIP Tool)= your NEC burner. As far as future Safedisc versions= nobody knows m8.

    Burners have come way down in price so maybe consider the Lite-ON LTR 52\32\52 cdrw....
