Which datatype should I use for a SafeDisc 2+ disc? Alcohol 120% has options for SafeDisc 2/3/4 and SafeDisc 2/3/4 (EFM* Writer).

I usually use the efm safedisc setting for safedisc protected games afaik safedisc 2 used weak sectors to try to stop copying and to overload the buffer but either profile should be fine

I have had some success with "skip reading errors" ON, "fast skip error blocks" OFF, "read sub-channel data from current disc" ON for Safedisc 2. Some discs are more stubborn, but these generally work. I haven't dealt a lot with later versions, though. Please try and post your experience if you are successful.

If you just want to make an image, then both options will give the same result. They only differ in how the image is written if you wan't to burn it on a CD - use the EFM one if your burned supports writing "weak" sectors.
