3. CloneCD reading Tests

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.1.1.0) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc 1), No One Lives For Ever (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock 1), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to test the reading performance of the drive. We also tested its reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between the original and the backup media. The following pictures show reading/writing capabilities of the drive:

- PSX Pressed Media

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times for Aopen RW5120A, which is low (86secs).

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

Aopen RW5120A is faster than the already good performer Philips DVDRW208 when reading SafeDisc 1 protected CDs. It needs only 2 mins and 42 seconds to end the task, which is much faster than other DVD+RW recorders, including Ricoh MP5120A.

With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, Aopen RW5120A performs lower than with SD1 CDs, but the final reading time is very good and faster than Philips DVDRW208.

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

In the LaserLock 1/2 protected CDs test, Aopen RW5120A has lower reading performance than Ricoh MP5120A and Philips DVDRW208, with the original & backup CD.

- SecuROM Results

Aopen RW5120A can read SubChannel Data from Data/Audio tracks, although it is a little slower than competition.
