Pioneer DVR-104 DVD-R

3. CloneCD reading Tests

Pioneer DVR-A04 IDE DVD-R/RW - Page 3

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.3.4.1) 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 Pioneer DVR-A04. 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

Both DVR-A03/A04 drives are not the best choice for reading SD1/2 protected CDs. The DVR-A04 drive seems slightly improved over the DVR-A03 drive.

- LaserLock 1/2 results

In the LaserLock 1/2 protected CDs tests, Pioneer DVR-A04's is not too fast and users should really use another drive for such reading tasks.

- SecuROM results

Pioneer DVR-A04 can only read 16bytes (and not 96bytes) of SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. This means that you can backup SecuROM 2 CDs but not LibCrypt PSX protected titles, in case you use the DVR-A04 as the main reader.
