MS-8152 IDE CD-ROM - Page
We used CloneCD and 4 original CDs - Serious Sam 2 (SafeDisc 2), Desperados
(LaserLock 2), V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) and NBA Jam Extreme (PSX) - in order
to test the reading time of the drive. We also tested the reading performance
with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original
and backup media. The following pictures show the drive reading/writing capabilities
as CloneCD reports:
- PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image
to the HD with CloneCD. The MSI MS-8152 is the slowest drive and needed 335secs
to finish the task. The TEAC CD-552E has the best performance with 87secs.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The MSI drive is very slow with SafeDisc 2 discs. It needs 2hours and 7mins
to finish the reading...
- LaserLock v.2 Results
With the LaserLock v.2 protected disc, the drive again was slow
but faster than the other drives of the test.
- SecuROM Results
All the drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The MSI MS-8152
was the faster drive among the competition.
