3. RW reading tests

Mitsumi CR-4809TE IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.84 Results: (Click to see the graph)

For the RW tests we used the Ricoh's HS-RW media written at 10x speed. The Mitsumi CR-4809TE has one of the highest average reading performance ,with HS-RW media, and beats the competitive drives:

CloneCD 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 time of the Mitsumi CR-4809TE. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media. For comparison reasons we added the results of the already tested PleXWriter PX-W2410A, LiteOn LTR-24102B and TEAC CD-W524E. The following picture shows the drive's reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports - (drive supports only hardware error correction):

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The Mitsumi CR-4809TE gave the highest reading times with SafeDisc 1/2 protected CDs. The drive needs almost 55mins to make an image of the protected CD in the HD, which is very slow compared to what the competition offers...

With SafeDisc2 protected CDs the performance is identical...

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

With LaserLock 1 protected CDs, the Mitsumi CR-4809TE performs slightly better than with SafeDisc 1/2 CDs but again it is the slowest drive.

The LaserLock 2 protected CDs are very hard for all recorders to read. The Mitsumi drive does not make an exception. It needs 25mins to read both the original/backup CDs and gets the second/last place respectively.

- SecuROM Results

The Mitsumi CR-4809TE does support reading of SubChannel from Data/Audio Tracks. The reading performance is good, however the LiteOn LTR-24102B is much faster.
