What happens if you start from your Original CD/DVD?

Try using the latest trial version of Alcohol to make your image. Nero isn't really suited to the task.

Nero cant extract necessary data from the cd to get around with the copy protection. (you can get a trial version of Alcohol 120% at www.alcohol-software.com)

You could always wait for DTools Pro to be finished. No idea when that will be, though.

To create images you could try also Alcohol 52% Free Edition.

There is no Alcohol 52% Free Edition. It also requires a license.
Correct me if I am wrong.
