Ricoh MP5120A DVD+RW

4. RW reading tests

Ricoh MP5120A IDE DVD+RW - Page 4

RW reading tests

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

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh's 4-10x HS-RW media. The Ricoh's average reading speed with HS-RW media is 25.24X, slight lower than what a pure CD-RW drive can give back:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.9.1) 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 Ricoh MP5120A. 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 for both drives:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results:

The Ricoh MP5120A performed very well with SafeDisc protected CDs. The drive needs 5mins to complete the task. Note that the drive reports more bad sectors than the real existing one.

With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, the Ricoh MP5120A performs lower than with SD1 CDs... Again the drive reports more bad sectors than the real existing one.

LaserLock 1/2 Results:

In the LaserLock 1/2 protected CDs tests, the Ricoh MP5120A performed quite well..

SecuROM Results:

The Ricoh MP5120A can read SubChannel Data from Data/Audio tracks.
