CloneCD Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v4.0.0.0) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc 1), No One Lives For Ever /Serious Sam (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock 1), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - 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

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to the HD with CloneCD. Lite-On LXR-24101A finished the task in 176secs.
