Cannot make Pasti image - Scan sync error

I am trying to make pasti image of Czech Atari ST game "Hlava Kasandry". It is on 3 floppies and the game is not possible to find anywhere on internet. Unfortunately the game is copy protected.
It is possible to install the game to harddrive. But it is necessary to have floppy B in drive during the gameplay.

I made the image from 2 of 3 disks but unfortunately it does not work with the last one. During the imaging this warning appears. What does this mean? How to avoid this error?
I use Atari 1040STE with TOS 2.06 for the task.

Hey. I can't remember all the details, but you're supposed to clean your drive heads,
and then "warm it up" by doing some practice runs before you actually start trying
to do the actual copy.

If you follow the Missing Pasti game message thread, you'll see where I had this
problem with quite a few titles.

Unfortunately, some of them I never got to work. :(
