Yamaha CRW2100S CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

Yamaha CRW2100S SCSI CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

For the RW tests we used Ricoh HS RW media written at 8x speed. The Yamaha CRW2100S refused to read HS RW media that was written at 10x so we lowered the speed to 8x in order to complete the test:

The CRW2100S continues to read very fast RW media and gave back the best average reading speed around 30x!

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v2.8.4.2) and 3 original CDs (Rally Masters, Euro2000 and Vrally 2 Expert) in order to test the reading time for Yamaha CRW2100E (firmware v1.0H). We also tested the reading performancenai with backups of the original CDs since the reading speed varies among original and backup media. For comparison reasons we added the results from PleXWriter PX-W1610A and Sanyo CRD-BP4/TDK CyClone 161040.

- Results:

a) SafeDisc Results: Euro 2000 (Total: 257982 sectors - 10141 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

The Plexwriter PX-W1610A leads with the Yamaha CRW2100S following the race when reading SafeDisc protected CDs. What is noticeable here is that both the Yamaha and Plextor drives improve the reading speed when the backup CD is used.

b) LaserLock Results: Rally Masters (Total: 321528 sectors - 6317 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

From the past test's experience most drives have serious problems when reading LaserLock protected CDs. The CRW2100S comes second behind TDK 161040 when reading Original CDs but last of all when reading the Backup CD. There is an issue here since the drive reports more bad sector than the existing one.. That could cause problems when using the Yamaha 2100S as a reader for LaserLock protected CDs. :(

c) SecuROM Results: Vrally2 Expert - 343767 sectors

The Yamaha CRW2100S is simply the BEST in SecuROM tests. It reads it with incredible fast speed and bypass the competition with a great distance gap. Of course we have tested the backup, with Yamaha as the reader source, and it worked fine.
