Yamaha CRW3200E CD-RW

4. RW reading tests

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 Yamaha 3200E performed very well and could possibly had the first place if AOpen's CRW2440 wasn't in this comparison:

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.1.0.0) 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 times of Yamaha CRW3200E. 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 AOpen CRW2440. The following picture shows the Yamaha's CRW3200E reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The Yamaha CRW3200E performs very good with SD1 protected CDs and gives the highest reading performance. The competition is close but Yamaha 3200E leads the race.

With SafeDisc2 protected CDs, things are different. The Yamaha CRW3200E gave back a rather slow reading speed with the original CD, but with the backup media follows closely follows the PleXWriter PX-W2410A.

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

In the LaserLock 1 protected CDs test, the Yamaha drive has a rather average performance with the original CD. Performance is better with backup CD, but the competition is faster.

The Yamaha CRW3200E performed much better with LaserLock 2 protected CDs. The drive, even slow, finished the tasks in an adequate amount of time. The LiteOn LTR-24102B holds the first place and is AOpen follows in the second place.

- SecuROM Results

The Yamaha CRW3200E does support reading SubChannel from Data/Audio Tracks and reads them quite fast!
