It's supposed to find the read errors. It's encountering the protection and is duplicating it. The read should only take about 10 minutes or so. It will start out very slow and pick up speed as it gets past the first 4% or 5% of the disc. That's where the copy protection lays.
I was a die hard Clone CD man, but I've switched to Alcohol 120% for the past month. I still use Clone CD for audio discs, I just like the read settings better than Nero or Alcohol 120%.
But for a copy protected disc, Alcohol 120% has them all beat. Yes, I've also got Blindewrite, Daemon Tools, ClonyXXL etc. etc.
Just remember, when doing a Safedisc 2.x disc, you'll have to enable the 'Ignore Media Type' in Alcohol 120% or 'Hide ATIP' in CloneCD in order to get the back up copy to work right. Even with a LTR-52246S, you have to enable it.
