    It's safedisc 2.8 protected and can be copied successfully with any 2 sheep burner. However, clonecd isn't reliable for copying sd 2.8 protected games.

    Assuming that you do have a 2 sheep writer, any of alcohol, ******** or the discdump/fireburner combination will produce a working back-up copy.

    As usual for all safedisc backup use the fastdump method :

    Select safedisc emulation in daemon
    Launch the original CD and exit the game
    Launch your favorite dumping program
    - All the unreadable sectors should be read in a few seconds

    Burn with the good burning program (not clonecd for safedisc 2.8)

    If you don't have a good burner or if clonecd was used, select again safedisc emulation to play the cd .

    Dumping is the process of creating an image of a cd. You can then burn this image or mount it to a virutal drive.

    So, it's best to use Alcohol to "dump" this sort of games...? Sorry if the question sounds stupid, but I am a newbie here...

    What's best may be subjective as long as it works, however in my humble opinion (and I guess most other people's here on the board) Alcohol is the best way to go, yes.

    CloneCD still seems to have problems with SafeDisc >2.8 let alone the newer SecuROM versions.

    I cannot tell you much about Blindwrite as I've never used it - it surely has its fans as well. But I guess this forum mostly (not completely!) consists of Alcohol fans rather than Blindwrite...

    Just go ahead, download a trial from their homepage, and check it out...
