Been browsing your forum and website for a while and have learned alot from your posts. I finally came across a problem I haven't been able to figure out though. I recently upgraded to a TDK 48x24x48x (4800B) VeloCD burner. Every review I have read said it was great for backing up CD's.
My question is.. when I use it to read an image of an old Safedisc (alt) CD (Need for Speed 4: High Stakes) it reads terribly slow to start (around .20x) and at 50% of read its at 3.94
X read speed. Is this normal for a Safedisc read? My cousin has an old CD burner that smoked through reading the same disk (read it in under 5 minutes) and mine is only at 65% after 16 minuntes. The funny part was, his couldn't write it, but my drive wrote it from his image perfectly.
Sorry for the long post, but it always seems people post too few details. ;) Thanks!

Tried using Clony XXL 220.127.116.11 settings, as well as the Safedisc (No AWS) profile with same results. The last sector CloneCD log reported had trouble reading was 10173. Thanks again!
