SW-232B IDE CDR-W - Page
We used CloneCD (v220.127.116.11 beta 30) 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 drive. We also tested the reading performance with
backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original
and backup media. The following picture shows the drive's reading/writing capabilities:
- PSX pressed media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image
to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times and the Samsung SW-232B gets
the fourth position with 280secs:
- SafeDisc v.2 results
With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, the Samsung SW-232B has a good
performance and finished the task in less than 10 minutes.
- LaserLock 1/2 results
In the LaserLock v.1 protected CDs test, the Samsung SW-232B gave a very low
performance with the original disc. The results are better with the backup disc,
and the drive finished the task in 8 minutes.
Samsung SW-232B was extremely slow in the LaserLock v.2 test and took 2 hours
to finish the original disc test.
- SecuROM Results
Samsung SW-232B can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks fast. The
drive gets the second position behind the slightly faster LiteOn LTR-32123S.
