    - he's using an image without bad sectors in Alcohol's virtual drive -> doesn't work (showing a typical error message)
    - then he's turning on BAD Sectors Emulation in Alcohol -> working

    Hence it's no blacklist problem.

    Trouble is - I want to be sure that my sd protected backups are 100% legit. Currently I MUST use alcohol52% for testing this. Because even if protection not cloned fully - DT still run this backup from virtual drive w/o warnings. And "burn cd-r - test" method is wrong way.
    This is the only cause for my suggestion.

    Sorry, but no - I know what I doing. I disable sd emulation in A52 before testiong. I even uninstall A52.

    Sorry, but I'm not so unskilled.
    Safedisk emulation in A52% was disabled.
    Plus to be completely sure I even uninstall A52%.
    Still the same results.

    I buy the old boxed pc games for my collection sometimes. Then I make hdd backups and use backups only - no cd scars, faster install/running etc.
    With this "auto safedisk emulation for virtual drives" all my sd 1x-2x backups can be inaccurate.
    Currently I forced to use A52% for check. Or cd-rw burn/test routine.

    No drive has problems reading/storing the bad sectors (besides speed of course), only the weak ones can be problematic for few drives - but they aren't affected by the emulation.

    So your images (with bad sectors) are 100% legit - at least that emulation doesn't adulterate your tests.

    But maybe Development still drops it - we will see

    Default Disable Emulation

    I am trying to use my Need For Speed Pro Street disc in the disc drive but it keeps telling me there is an error with emulation. This is NOT an iso. I was uable to create an iso for this game. Is there any way to disable the emulator without having to uninstall it completely?
