- Page 4
We used CloneCD (v184.108.40.206) 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.
