4. CloneCD Reading Tests

TEAC CD-W540E IDE CDR-W - Page 4

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.3.4.1) and 4 original CDs - No One Lives For Ever (SafeDisc 2), Desperados (LaserLock 2), V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) and NBA Jam Extreme (PSX) - in order to test the reading time of the drives. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media. The following pictures show the drive(s) reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:

- PSX Pressed Media

ASUS CRW4012A is the faster reader with 48secs. PleXWriter PX-W4012A and TEAC CD-W540E get the second place with 54secs and LiteOn last with 116secs:

- SafeDisc 2 Results

PleXWriter PX-W4012A is the faster reader for SafeDisc 1/2 protected CDs. ASUS CRW4012A follows and LiteOn comes third. TEAC CD-W540E is really slow, since it needs almost 25minutes to read the test disc.

- LaserLock 2 Results

With LaserLock v.2 protected CDs, ASUS CRW4012A performed very well and gets the first place with the original disc. PleXWriter comes first with the backup disc. TEAC CD-W540E is really slow with both original/backup discs.

- SecuROM Results

All tested drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. LiteOn LTR-40125S comes first, ASUS CRW4012A second, PleXWriter PX-W4012A third and TEAC CD-W540E last.
