Ricoh MP7163A CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

Ricoh MP7163A IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.84b Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The AOpen CRW1632 drive again gave slight higher than Ricoh MP7163A:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.8.2) 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 Ricoh MP7163A. 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 AOpen CRW1632. The following picture shows the Ricoh MP7163A reading/writing capabilities:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The Ricoh MP7163A is much slower than AOpen CRW1632 as our tests showed.

With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, the Ricoh MP7163A seems having improved reading performance than with SD1 but far away from what the AOpen CRW1632 can give.

LaserLock 1/2 Results

In the LaserLock protected CDs test, the Ricoh MP7163A has better reading performance with the original CD, but AOpen CRW1632 wins back with the backup CD.

With LaserLock 2 protected CDs, Ricoh MP7163A reads the original CD faster than the AOpen CRW1632. This however does not apply with the backup CD, since AOpen performes better.

SecuROM Results

The Ricoh MP7163A can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks very fast! The drive is faster than AOpen CRW1632 with the original CD, but stays slight back with the backup one.
